Commented tour: The Botanical Garden and Arboretum of Mendel University in Brno


The Botanical Garden and Arboretum of Mendel University in Brno is among the most-admired garden paradises. The premises, covering an area of almost 11 hectares, include over 7,000 plant species, with diverse orchids and perennials being the most abundant, and 4,000 woody plants. Although the premises are situated in a location with an average annual temperature of around 8°C, this garden includes plants and woody plants of exotic Asia, spirited Latin America and even Africa and Australia. With their large diversity, the premises are divided into five thematic areas.

As part of EKOFILM, you can visit the premises free of charge on Thursday and Friday from 10 am to 7 pm! Moreover, a tour (in Czech) with commentary is scheduled on Friday from 16.00 to guide the visitors around all of the five thematic sections of the garden.



Remember that nature is powerful and sometimes the smallest creatures have the greatest power. Viruses. Therefore, please do not forget that you must wear a respirator at internal events and prove yourself with a certificate of vaccination or infectivity before entering. More info here.
