BOTANICAL GARDENS

Slovenian botanical gardens, arboretums and alpinetums invite you for enjoyable walks among colourful flowers and ancient trees. They invite us to observe the world around us with different eyes, with a different perception of the colours, shapes, smells and exceptional life energy. Discover the special features of the plants at Botanical Gardens in Ljubljana, Maribor, Sežana or Pragersko, at the Alpine Botanical Garden Juliana in Trenta, at the Arboretum Volčji potok, at Mozirski gaj, at the Garden of Healing and Aromatic Herbs in Žalec and elsewhere.

Rosarium and Hompoš Castle
A botanical garden of various stories
Officially opened as late as 2002, the beginning of the park goes back to the end of 19th century. The remnants of that period are two giant sequoias and a huge white cedar. Today, the main focus of the botanical garden is conservation and protection of plant species and growing of endangered plants. The botanical garden enriches the college education and for the visitors, it offers an insight into the natural, decorative and useful plants.
