About the Hortus Botanicus Třeboň

Department of Experimental Garden and Collection of Aquatic and Wetland Plants is part of the Institute of Botany, which is involved in research on taxonomy, biosystematics and evolution of plants and selected groups of fungi, ecology, ecophysiology, phytogeography, vegetation mapping, dendrochronology and palaeoecology, and karyology and population genetics studies, both nationally and internationally. The Institute carries on three departments suitable as botanic garden or park: the Pruhonice Park, the Pruhonice Botanic Garden and the Hortus Botanicus Třeboň (Collection of aquatic and wetland plants in Třeboň).


The Collection was being put together gradually since 1976 for scientific purposes in the first place. Today, the Collection is botanical garden and is open to students and public. It is actively involved in the activities of the Working group for the gene pools, which secures conservation of the critically endangered domestic flora in ex situ collections of the botanical gardens. The exposition of our botanical garden includes more than 700 species of aquatic and wetland plants. The majority come from Central Europe. Our collection contains common plants of our streams, rivers and ponds, and also rare species of plants, including the ones that have become extinct from our nature.
