Tropski rastlinjak

Botanic Garden is a piece of true nature which is located in the center of Ljubljana and is also easily accessible by bus. Guided tours, lectures and workshops, even for the youngest children, childcare with workshops during holidays and birthday celebrations take place in the Garden. We also host a variety of events, exhibitions and we organise excursions to the Ljubljana Moors, where we learn to observe the surroundings, to exept them as our own, and thus learn to protect plants in their natural habitats.

Since 2009, we take care for the glasshouse Tivoli, located along side Rose garden and bar Čolnarna, which is attractive all year round, so you can visit it anytime. You can see tropical plants and cacti, and from April to October also Mediterranean plants on the lawn behind the glasshouse.

You can visit us all year round, even in the winter, on weekends and holidays. In winter time you can observe nature during the winter rest, or explore tropical plants in our tropical glasshouse.

Every year, a large number of pupils, students, tourists, and other groups order a guided tour of the garden, as we organise them for all plant-lovers and for all levels of schooling. We also prepare special thematic lessons and excursion to Ljubljana Moors. All this activities, run by professionals, are attended by over 6000 visitors each year, that is over 300 groups. On average, they stay in garden accompanied by our guides, for more than 2 hours. The great diversity of plants in the Botanic Garden enables the presentation of the garden to go beyond representing basis information on plants; we try to explain the plant kingdom in a way that is both instructive and interesting.

The knowledge of plants has been in decline. Our expertly trained collaborators will bring you closer to the nature in which we live, but are hardly aware of nor we know it enough.

By prior agreement, we also organise guided tours, workshops and excursions in other languages than Slovene, even for groups of educators, teachers and professors, for people with special needs: the disabled, blind, deaf, care facilities or kindergardens and schools for children with special needs.

In our store you can buy a garden and house plants, books, seeds, flower arrangements out of natural materials…
