The Botanical Garden is one of the old natural "place" with scientific informations about the "collections". For me and for my family is one wonderful place for recreation and education in any seasons.

Top destination in Cluj, mostly in spring and summer. Indoor and outdoor show of plants, nice walking paths and lots of quite spots should be a premium for this almost 100 years old garden in the heart of the city.

Hi, everyone! I strongly recommend this place because it is an outdoor activity and because the flowers in spring and summer are one of a kind. We walked for 2-3 hours in this place, taking photos and admiring the sights. I like it because it is in the middle of the city and it's so refreshing in a hot summer... More

Lots of plant types, quiet time, a place where you can find your peace again. Different types of gardens from all over the world will make your day and your time so lovely that you would want to come back again! I reccommend it without doubt.

Although there aren't too many flowers in the winter it's a very nice place to have a walk and enjoy the nature.

Nice to walk through and admire different flowers and trees. There's lot types of roses and tulips, a nice Japanese garden, a tropical covered area for tropical fauna. As a minus i haven't seen any improvements maybe because of missing investments. The efforts are pretty high to keep it open so they have all my respect.

I visited this botanical garden in August and there were two wonderful exhibitions: a blooming rose one and a gladiola one. Such exquisite colors and perfumes! The rest of the garden was beautiful, too with quiet paths and a variety of green plants and trees - I had a very relaxing 3-hour stroll! I also particularly enjoyed the Japanese pavilion... More

Nice place where you feel in the middle of the nature. You find a lot of plants species and the place is huge. I've been to other botanical gardens but this one seems tyne nicest.

The botanical garden, Gradina Botanica, is a quiet and relaxing place to visit if you stay some days in Cluj. It is good for a hideaway from the more stressful life in the city. Naturally the garden changes as the seasons changes. In the center of the garden is a Japaneese garden, very beautiful place.
