European garden

The unique landscape - architectural whole called the European Garden, covers 900 square meters within the outdoor part of the garden. It is designed in a heliocentric form that in the most obvious way enables visitors to meet and study a large number of predominantly herbaceous plants of the European flora.

Over 500 different species of flowering, dicotyledone plants (Magnoliopsida) are cultivated and grown on this parcel, enriching the view of every visitor of the Botanical Garden. Among numerous different species, there are also many exeptionally decorative ornamental plants that grow spontaneously. The visitors will enjoy the beautiful fragrances of numerous aromatic native plant species such as lavender, rosemary, melis, but they can also learn a lot about the medicinal, nutritive or toxic properties of numerous plants, including many rare and endangered species of our country.

It is especially important that the teaching material of most botanical courses is given to pupils and students, primarily of the Faculty of Biology, in the most practical way, facilitating their studying.

In addition to the plants, there are beautiful artworks in the European Garden, sculpture of peacock and butterfly - botanical installations made of varnished aluminium and green lianas, which were designed by the members of the Association of Artists of Serbia, the movement "Topiary Art Trust".
