This is another gem that must be visited. All the plants were donated by a wealthy merchant. They also have a little garden shop where the lady there does some wonderful arrangements…it was founded in 1892 by the first Bulgarian professor in botany Dr. Stefan Georgiev. At the opening ceremony King Ferdinand I planted an oak tree laying a gold coin in its roots. There are about 1500 species of plants including special collections of palms, ferns, orchids, peonies and roses. Of note is a lovely ginkgo.
