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.

  • 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.
