Botanical garden 125th anniversary was honoured by a commemorative postage stamp issued by the Croatian post.
Due to construction work during the Exhibition greenhouse restoration, the auxiliary entrance (Marulić Sq.) is closed until further notice, as is the passage along the northern brick house. Entrance for wheelchairs, baby strollers and bicycle parking is available from the western side of the Garden (Car entrance, Runjaninova St.) during visiting hours.
Entering and passing with bicycles is not allowed – please leave them at bicycle parking stands near all the entrances. We also kindly ask you not to enter the Garden with your pets (even small dogs in bags) and respect this 120 years old rule!
We started with Wooden bridge reconstruction in spring 2016 and finished by autumn same year. Entire bridge is reconstructed from larchwood, which should ensure it’s longevity. All the works were made by Garden employees, under the expert supervision of Garden’s carpenter Marko Pavlek.
The following year we reconstructed the Gazebo, using larchwood as well. Previous gazebo was never finished according to original plans and painted white, which was corrected in this restoration project: appropriate base was added, as well as tin roof with decoration, all the woodwork was painted using the same mahogany red colour of the Exhibition pavilion and the Wooden bridge, and the flower beds were planted with new perennials. The Gazebo was a present from the Arboretum Lisičine on the occasion of the Garden’s 100th birthday (1989).
