They invite us to observe the world around us with different eyes, with a different perception of the colours, shapes, smells and exceptional life energy. Discover the special features of the plants at Botanical Gardens in Ljubljana, Maribor, Sežana or Pragersko, at the Alpine Botanical Garden Juliana in Trenta, at the Arboretum Volčji potok, at Mozirski gaj, at the Garden of Healing and Aromatic Herbs in Žalec and elsewhere.

Alpine Botanical Garden Juliana

Garden at the end of May
The oldest Alpine botanical garden in Slovenia
Juliana was set up in 1926 by Albert Bois de Chesne, a landowner from Trieste, and has been continuously managed since 1962 by the Slovenian Museum of Natural History. As early as 1951, Juliana was officially protected as a monument of designed landscape. In spite of the fact that Juliana is a fairly small botanical garden, no less than about 600 species of alpine, pre-alpine and karst plants grow in it, including numerous rare, protected and endemic species.
