About the Gödöllő Botanical Garden

The Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences Gödöllő Botanical Garden was founded in 1959 as the First Agrobotanical Garden of Hungary. The Collection of Cultivated plants is one of the most emphasized part of the garden. Beside numerous species of the Hungarian Flora visitors can get acquainted with several indigenous species of faraway continents. Out of the 15 main thematic collections of the garden, the Lily tree Collection, the Wild rose Collection and the Bamboo Collection are also outstanding on a national level. The botanical garden is a nature conservation area with regard to the relict forest stand of `Aceri campestri-Quercetum roboris`. Botanical Garden homes about 1.8 thousand plant species, and the number of protected plant species from the Hungarian Flora more than 100.
