Place to relax
The garden was in the first instance planted for scientific purposes and belonged originally to the University of Wroclaw. The Botanical Garden Wroclaw has the nickname, “oasis of beauty and rest in the heart of the town”. Meanwhile is the garden for the inhabitants of Wroclaw the favourite place to relax. Tourists also are gladly drawn to the garden because the manicured landscape gives a restful effect. You do not have the idea that you are walking around in the centre of a town. In the garden there are no less than 7000 different sort of plants and it is just a living museum. You can easily walk around for an hour and enjoy the beauty which the Botanical Garden provides. On the terrain there is, next to all the natural beauty, also a plant shop and a café.
