The Garden was a nice place to walk and wonder in a very sunny and hot day. The most wonderful thing for us was the waterlily pools with the frogs and the baby frogs - so cute! Remember to bring your own drinks and snacks with you - there was nothing to buy inside the garden.

Though the Botanical Garden is slightly out of the way from the main city, it was well worth the visit for being in the company of beautiful serene nature after the hectic sight seeing of Bratislava attractions.It is a part of the university in Karlovaves near the river Danube & is supposed to have been developed through many years.The present...

Botanic Garden (Botanicka Zahrada) is a naturally beautiful place which you get to on trams 8 or 9 and is part of the Komenskeho Bratislavia University Faculty. Situated in Cintorinska ul, 900 24 Velky Biel. Entry was 1 Euro 50. Very peaceful and they have a cactus, rain forest and desert display. There is a very good rose garden also.

This garden is first of its kind opened in Slovakia and the only botanic garden in Bratislava. It is one of the favorite destinations for relaxation for locals as well as visitors of our capital city. This beautiful botanic garden is very well kept and you can easily spend a couple of hours wandering round, even though it is our... More

A really good botanical garden only a few Km out from the old town centre of Bratislava and easily accessible by 2 local tram services (4 and 12 I think, but worth checking). The journey takes about 10 mins - only 4 stops from the centre. There's a 3 Euro entrance fee (50% reduction for concessions). Well laid out gardens... More

Small and nicely laid out (a bit unfortunate that is right next to several busy roads, but you'll soon forget that). there's also several hothouses for a tropical weather fix should you need it. Take trams no. 4,5,9,12 from the centre towards Dubravka.

If you want to experience the spirit of Bratislava, go to the Botanical Garden, you'd see plenty of beautiful plants and flowers. Shame we could not bring any with us. But, if you have some time, explore the garden, the aroma is just magnificent! My mother certainly enjoyed wandering around, and so did I !
