Do you remember the beautiful and almost magical garden from the Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel The Secret Garden? I always imagined that garden had its own personality and healing powers. When I think about the Ljubljana Botanic Garden, the secret garden is my association.
It’s located not more than 15 minutes' walk from the historical City Centre of Ljubljana and you can find it easily. Take a walk (or use a bike) along the Gruberjevo embankment by the River Ljubljanica. At the end, there is Špica. Cross the footbridge, cross a small road and you’ll find yourself in front of the Ljubljana Botanic Garden.
If you want to escape from the touristic centre, the summer heat, the winter chills or you just want to read a book or explore the green Ljubljana, the Botanic Garden is the place to go.
