Botanical Garden, Cluj-Napoca

4.3
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 .

  • We looked here on the day of our arrival, because of the recommendations. Although due to the fall, most of the flowers were already ready to be filled with forested parts. Our only sense of deficiency was that the greenhouses were closed, but they asked for a full price.

  • A very large variety of plants. Compared to many botanical gardens, this one is the top of the list. Definitely a must see for tourists. Even if you're just transiting the city, don't hesitate to stop one hour to admire the beauty of the garden
  • Great place to go and chill. Right in the middle of the city this little place of heaven it's perfect for a walk after a stressful day. I strongly recommend the botanical garden and believe that nature is the best medicine for anything. And I would recommend the greenhouses, they have great plants in there, sadly when I was there they were close.
