Botanical Gardens Bucharest

Bucharest Botanical Gardens were founded in 1860,  completed in 1866 to the designs and instructions of Ulrich Hoffmann.  Today, the gardens extends over an area of more than 17 hectares, and hosts more than 10,000 species of plants.

The gardens were opened in 1891, when the building of the greenhouses finished. The garden was damaged during World War I, when it was used by the German occupation troops, and during World War II when it was hit by Anglo-American bombardments.

In the Garden there is a Botanical Museum in a building of the Brâncovenesc style, located near the entrance gate, where more than 5,000 plant species are displayed, including 1,000 exotic plants.
