Jevremovac Botanical Garden - basic information

This is the first botanical garden opened in Serbia in 1874. It is located in the center of the city, so it is a real natural oasis in the middle of which you can get away from the city noise. Since the ticket price is very low, or free, many often return to this place, which is marked as a natural monument.

History of the Jevremovac Botanical Garden
The Botanical Garden was founded back in 1874, at the suggestion of Josif Pančić, a prominent Serbian doctor and botanist, Josif Pančić. This location was preceded by another, which was located on Dorcol, near the Danube. Unfortunately, due to unfavorable conditions, the Botanical Garden had to be moved. Thus, it was built on the property that King Milan Obrenović donated to the Great School, where Pančić taught botany. That property was the former orchard of the king's grandfather Jevrem, which is why the Botanical Garden is called Jevremovac. In 1892, a large greenhouse was built within Jevremovac. At that time, it was one of the most beautiful and most developed in the Balkans. The botanical garden was at the zenith of the 1930s, after which it was neglected due to lack of funds. Fortunately, that has changed over time, the Botanical Garden has experienced its revival, and in 2004 it received the Japanese Garden, which houses a collection of Far Eastern fauna. Today, the Botanical Garden is a unit of the Faculty of Biology in Belgrade.

Characteristics of the Jevremovac Botanical Garden
