Even though "close" still involves some walking. Its worth it. Several areas are organized a bit in topics. The traveller can find besides beautiful variations of flowers also cactuses, several greenhouses show variations of palm trees and other plants..more in need of warm and humid environment. One of the bigger greenhouses shows a nice example of vertical gardening. The centre... More

Nice, quite and peaceful place to relax. If you are looking for exotic plants, there is not much to see, but if you are interested in nature in general this place is really nice

A wonderful selection of plants from all over the world. Well worth a visit. Well set out and signposted. The greenhouses are a must with such a wide range of exotic plants. A steep climb from the centre but well worth it when you get there.

Worth a little walk up from the centre these gardens might not have the impact of botanical gardens in other large cities around the world but it offers a nice walk through some undulating gardens with plenty of information about plants and the local people.

A lovely place to wander around it has a hot house a stream and a tower to climb to get a good view word of warning railings are dubious and watch out for the concrete beams as you are walking up as they are very low but this doesn't detract from the experience well worth a visit

It's a fairly large garden and has many different areas to explore. Nice relaxing place with areas to sit down and chat or plenty of paths to walk and talk.

We enjoyed very much our time spend in the garden. The greenhouse are just amazing. We loved the Japanese garden and the roses. The price is very very low (5 lei for an adult). I recommand this experience for anyone who is visiting Cluj. We are going to be back here in another season to enjoy other plants and flowers.
