Established in 1810, the Ljubljana Botanical Garden is Slovenia's oldest cultural, scientific and educational institution operating uninterruptedly since its foundation. The Garden contains more than 4,500 different species and subspecies. One third of them are endemic to Slovenia, while the rest originate from other parts of Europe and other continents.
The Garden, collaborating with more than 270 botanical gardens worldwide, is involved in scientific research and educational activities. It plays an important role in the growing and protection of Slovenia's endemic, endangered, vulnerable and rare species.
The Ljubljana Botanic Garden's large tropical glasshouse offers you an opportunity to view plants typical of tropical forests. The glasshouse, built on the Garden's 200th anniversary, exhibits over 380 plant species native to tropical parts of the world.
