A place of a great historical and ecological value, The Botanical Garden ensures a calm, educational, and relaxing day out amid nature. Ever since the beginning of the 20th century, the garden has served as a scientific center and a place for academic research. Some time later, during World War II, it was severely damaged, but was quickly restored to its former glory. Today, it serves as a beloved walking route for families and couples, offering the chance to admire over 1,500 different plant species distributed across 17 sections, featuring nine ponds throughout.
