It’s no longer Spring but beware for a very flowery and bloomy post. Despite the high temperatures in the city of Zagreb, I was still able to capture beautiful flowers of every shape and colour. Visiting the Botanical Gardens wasn’t exactly on my plan. But after walking all day in the city, the idea of simply being around nature was appealing. A regular ticket will only cost you 10 kunas (about £1.15) and it is indeed worth it. It’s a gorgeous and well-taken care park, filled with plants and trees from every corner of the world.
The Garden was created for the Department of Botanics and Physiology of the Faculty of Philosophy, and its planning started in 1890. A curious fact, the Faculty was already in existence for 220 years, even though Zagreb at the time was relatively small with only 38,000 inhabitants!
I tried to capture different textures, colours and shapes of the beautiful species of flora in the park. Please, enjoy!
