Belgrade Botanical Garden “Jevremovac”  was opened in 1847 by the decree of the Ministry of Education of the Kingdom of Serbia, at the suggestion of the botanist Josif Pančić, who also became its first manager.

The Garden was declared a natural monument in 1995 and a cultural monument in 2007.

The neighborhood surrounds the Garden and is located near the city center, just a 10-minute walk from Republic Square.  

The Garden is not as big as some other botanical gardens in European cities but offers a variety of activities and really diverse flora to explore within just one visit where you can also see the Herbarium of the University of Belgrade, one of the most significant and wealthiest collections in South-East Europe, and the Library, which accommodates over 7000 books and 300 scientific and professional magazines.

It incorporates an open space area, a greenhouse, and a charming Japanese garden. The best time to visit the Botanical Garden is in spring and summer but also during the early autumn months.

The visit to the Botanical Garden may be the perfect option to spend a summer day, still in the city center, but in a different environment. 

Besides, the garden offers guided tours, a great opportunity to learn more about the history of the Garden and the plant species growing there. 

The “Jevremovac” Botanical Garden is also known for hosting different cultural events, lectures and panels, open-air concerts, picnics, and even parties. 

We selected a couple of worth-visiting happenings during July:

  1. July - concert of band Two without helm (more details at Belef )
