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.

The dahlias are particularly beautiful in this time of the year. It is well worth visiting with friends family or just by yourself if you feel like taking the stroll in solitude.

I've visited this place many times as a child, on school trips, and I appreciate every visit, and the fact that many schools still organize trips here. The place is a good place and well maintained. I also recommend this for a romantic walk, or for going out with friends.
