Scientific rose garden

Botanical gardens in eastern Europe often suffer the lack of funding and rather look vast gardens. At the center of София you can find a well-maintained botanical garden belonging to the university – it is rather small in size but a wonderful place the recover from the hustle-and-bustle on the streets. It can be found next to the Alexander-Newski-Cathedral and the National Gallery.

The garden is divided into different sections and contains herbs, a rockery, a rose garden and green houses with tropical plants, orchids and cacti. It was opened already in 1892 and is the oldest botanical garden of Bulgaria.
