Plants in Wroclaw – Tour around Wroclaw for plants enthusiassts

plants in Wroclaw

 If you’re a fan of plants I invite you for non-obvious trip.
There is nothing more inseparable from humanity than nature. Nowadays, plants are becoming a very strong trend in fashion and indoor design; but today I want to pull you out of couch and make you go outside. I’d like to show you some places in Wroclav, where you can admire different kinds of plants.

Botanical Garden
First point on our tour map is Botanical Garden with Green House inside. The object is open between 2nd of April and 12th of November. During a few months, we can observe plants and flowers daily. And a ticket for student cost 10 PLN. Garden is located near well-known, historical Ostrów Tumski.

In Wroclav’s Garden you can admire cacti and other succulents in a historic Cactus House, as well as in two greenhouses where succulents of Africa and of Mexico are presented. Under the greenhouse’s roofs there is an impressive collection of exotic plants originating from warmer climatic zones. This is the best place to make “tropical” photos and breathe fresh air in the middle of the city.

Flower Shop

Leaving the Garden, we go to the newly opened place on the map of Wroclav. rośliny.  is a modern and minimalistic store. Here, the plants are in the spotlight. We can gain knowledge of how to take care about different types of plants and buy a beautiful seedling, too. I also recomand  you to find them on Instagram. They’re amazing.

Planty Mural
Next place we’re going to visit is a beautiful mural, located near Galeria Dominikańska. It has been painted on one of Wierzbowa Street’s walls, surrounded by modern office buildings.

Maze at Brochów
The last stop on the track is the Labyrinth at Wroclaw Brochów. The labyrinth that you will find in the park, today is a hornbeam labyrinth designed in the 1990s as part of a revitalization project. A walk through the maze is a game; it might give you some adrenalin. Having a long walk in the tunnel, after another turn you may come across a wall and have to turn back.

I hope you will enjoy my tips for spending your “green” day in Wroclaw!
