Trip Planner: Europe / Romania / Transylvania / Northwest Romania / Cluj County / Cluj-Napoca / Botanical Garden
At Botanical Garden, see the Amazonian water lilies--a lotus with gigantic leaves and white flowers--which turn pink as they mature. The garden supports three greenhouses with topical and sub-tropical species, a herbarium with over 635,000 plants, a museum, and an institute. In the Roman garden, look for archaeological ruins from the Roman colony of Napoca, including the statue of Ceres--the goddess of grain and bread. The Japanese garden, intersected by a brook, features a Japanese-style house. To visit Botanical Garden on your trip to Cluj-Napoca, use our Cluj-Napoca trip builder website.

Too bad this beautiful location. Withered flowers, untidy spaces and greenhouses with exotic flowers are closed as well as the history museum inside the garden. The Japanese garden is also partially..... more »
I visited this garden as a small child and today it makes me wonder about the care of those who manage it. more »
It does depend on the season you are going to visit the Botanical Garden. I used to be here quite a lot in my childhood. It is quite a big and really nice garden. I definitely suggest going on the tulips' blooming season. Breathtakingly beautiful, large variety of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils. Same, later in the year with roses and dahlias.
Go and walk around. Good and well maintained garden. The choice of flowers is really good. They have one of the best selection of roses I have seen. There is a nominal entry fee although free for students. Some parts of park are designed for runs and long walks. The directions are well placed and is quite clean.
