A walk trough the Botanical Garden of Iasi

Dating from 1856, Iasi’s Botanical Garden is the oldest and largest in Romania, conserving and exhibiting a rich collection of local and exotic plants from Europe and other continents. An educational and scientific laboratory, the garden houses a precious and rich collection of trees and plants. It also offers numerous shady lanes to explore, rose and orchid gardens, a collection of tropical plants, cacti, carnivorous plants, natural springs and a lake. It was established by the doctor and naturalist Anastasie Fatu, a great patriot, philanthropist and cultivated man. The garden is organized into many sectors, each with it’s own flora and vegetation, covering today almost 100ha.
