On the slight slopes of the Pohorje Mountain range only a few kilometres south of Maribor, the University of Maribor Botanical Garden invites visitors to explore the world of plants and history. Authentic and foreign flora are presented here, especially some floristic rarities of the Pohorje Mountain range and other parts of North Eastern Slovenia. It also holds many horticultural collections, provides places for meetings, relaxation, learning and playing. The garden is a scientific and research institution, open to the public.
The University of Maribor Botanical Garden spreads over an area of about 8 hectares and it is a part of a larger agricultural estate maintained by the Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The first steps towards planting a botanic garden were made in 1994 and many plant collections were added since 1996. Since 1999, the garden has been a member of the Botanic Gardens Conservation International society. The garden has been opened for visitors for the first time on the 24th of May 2002, celebrating the European Parks Day. Since then it welcomes visitors every day, from Moday to Sunday including holidays, from March till the end of November.
The garden is divided into seven bigger units, each one of them presenting a plant collection or a special kind of habitat. (See Map of the garden). An archaeological park, located on a 3000 year old prehistoric mount site, is going to become a part of the botanical garden in the near future.
