The botanical garden from Simeria is located in Hunedoara County - a beautiful place from Romania which is inviting you to discover its natural treasures. The garden is a arboretum extended on a huge surface of 70 ha. Just like the Bigar Waterfall, the park is no less outdated, earning some important positions in different tops:
- 🥇 No. 1 in the Top of The most beautiful botanical gardens from Romania;
- 🥈 No. 3 in the Top of The most beautiful botanical gardens from Europe;
- 🥉 No. 11 in the Top of The most beautiful botanical gardens in the WORLD.
By time, this place collected some of the most valuable and rare exotic plants, currently including 2165 different species. The park is surrounding the Gyulay Castle and the wild landscape is completed by little bridges over the river, lakes and benches located in the shade of the old trees, which are calling you to a moment of rest while you are listening to the silence of the nature.
Being such a huge surface, there are big risks of getting lost while you are exploring. If it's also a rainy day, you have to either enjoy the rain while you are hiding under the trees or figure out the way out of the park. I've been there before and even with the GPS it was hard to find the right path out of the botanical garden but it was so much fun! Where would be all the fun if it was so easy to just run away on such beautiful moments when the nature gets refreshed by rain showing their dewy colors? It's important to make beautiful from every situation so just enjoy any change may occur in any moment. Make it memorable! 💌
This great arboretum is maintained by only 4 persons which have a lot of beautiful stories to be shared with you, but if you want to visit the garden, you need at least 3 or 4 hours to discover the mystery of the plants. During the spring you may also have a surprise as the park becomes the guest house for deer, which are coming down the mountain to born their babies, the natural garden offering them the protection and habitat they truly need.
The entry fee is 5RON per person (~1EURO per person) and the doors are open daily for visitors between 8AM and 8PM. The tax means nothing comparing with the fresh air and good vibes that such a place can bring to you so be sure to add The Botanical Garden from Simeria high to your list of what to visit while you are in Romania. You will feel completely refreshed after just a few hours of walking between exotic species! 🔄
The Botanical Garden from Simeria was my first trip to a arboretum (which happened back in 2014) and since then I visited some more dendrological parks but this one earned a special place in my heart. Even the stories told by the guardian were so much fun that nothing could go wrong, not even the rain. The only thing that I feel sad about is that we couldn't explore the garden as much as we wanted to but we've still got plenty of memories and pictures that keeps this place alive until the next time when we will meet again. I hope you enjoyed our little trip and till the next post, go out there and explore the world!
