Stopped here on the way to Ston. It's a peaceful and quiet walk throughout the arboretum. All the trees are labeled which makes it interesting the learn about. It's worth walking down to the harbor. For any GOT fan, this is a filming site for the series. Costs 50 Kuna ($8). We stayed about an hour.

Of particular interest for its variety of trees and, in particular the enormous plane tree on the main road by the entrance to the place. This tree was a finalist in the European tree of the year contest. The gardens themselves are not especially interesting. The terrace that featured in "Game of Thrones" is closed to the public because it is structurally unsound. An average small garden really except, I suppose if you are knowledgeable about trees. They were imported into the garden from all over the world

Gardens were very quiet and peaceful. Pleasant to walk round with some stunning views. Some amazing trees, all labelled. Worth a walk down to the picturesque harbour. Pity there were no refreshments in October. Got a taxi from Dubrovnik but got a bus back.

Lovely place to walk around for an hour or two, with some good coastal views and a nice fountain centrepiece. Plus of course a GoT filming location. It’s worth making the effort to come here, particularly if you have your own car.

We visited as part of a game of thrones tour and it was spectacular to see where they filmed some of the beautiful garden scenes. Aside from this though, the garden is beautiful and would definitely recommend a visit.

If the heat of the Adriatic and the bustle of Dubrovnik get too much for you, then head here! Get a bus 12 or 15 from Gruz main bus station, they are cheap, clean and reasonably frequent.
Look for the brown tourist signs, or ask the driver and the bus stops near the top of the road, about 100 metres from the gate.
The gardens are well tended and tidy, but don't expect manicured lawns or gaudy flower beds, there aren't any because it's an arboretum!!
The trees are all labelled, so if you have more than a passing interest you can identify them. Some are magnificent specimens.
My wife and I spent several hours here strolling, luckily we had bought a picnic with us as there are no cafés in the garden itself. Afterwards we walked down to the little harbour which was pretty in a basic way with no facilities.

Spent a lovely 2-3 hours wandering around the gardens . The place is well laid out and the entrance fee also includes a map so it is very easy to find your way around . I am not really a gardener but I did enjoy the arboretum .

Visited here as part of a Game of Thrones tour (the gardens are used for various scenes set in Kings Landing, for fellow fans). Our guide shared the history of this beautiful place and there were many a welcome shady spot to enjoy as it was fairly hot during our visit. It’s essentially a folly of sorts built by a wealthy family from a forgotten time now. It’s well kept and there is a wide variety of plants, trees and shrubbery to keep your interest as well as an impressive water feature. It was fairly quiet when we visited which added to the tranquility and was a lovely contrast to the hustle of Dubrovnik. We enjoyed our walk around here and it helped to have some background history shared; a beautiful place which will change depending on the season. Definitely worth a look!

Would highly recommend visiting the arboretum if you enjoy nature and gardens. The oriental plane trees are spectacular! But! If you travel here on the bus, be aware that the bus stops are in different places in Trsteno. Travelling back to Slano we had to flag the bus down by the arboretum, or risk life and limb walking along the road (with cars flashing at us) to the unlabelled bus stop further up the road towards Slano, roughly 100 m. From Slano the bus fare is 23 kuna each way. We paid the same from Slano to Dubrovnik... Hmm?!

Enjoyed this garden. It is pretty, I liked the aqueduct as well as the fountain. I have visited many gardens throughout Europe and in South Africa, including the expansive, manicured Kirstenbosch Gardens which cost half of the above. So my feeling is that it should cost less to visit. My husband, stayed outside not willing to spend the money instead sent me to have a look.
If you follow the road down you will find the most darling little cove and harbour right at the bottom. Small and charming. This is super special to see and its for free!
