Wrocław Botanical Garden is an oasis of beauty located in the heart of the city. Created in 1811, it is the second oldest botanical garden in Poland. It is within the historic district of Ostrow Tumski.
To complete a thorough visit to the island you should not miss the charming Botanical Gardens (D-2, ul. Sienkiewicza 23). The gardens began life as a scientific pursuit, but have become a favourite retreat for Wrocław's residents. The garden was built from 1811 to 1816 on the riverbed where the Odra once flowed around Ostrów Tumski. The grounds include a huge diversity of plant life, aquariums, sculptures, a plant shop and cafe, and a large pond with picturesque bridges. On some days your peace and quiet could be marred by noisy groups of schoolkids, but the beautiful manicured landscapes include enough nooks and crannies that you should have no trouble forgetting you're in the centre of a big city. Highly recommended.Admission 15/5zł.
