I have heard that this botanical garden is a pretty good one, but I have never had time or the possibility to get there. I hope this year I will succeed!

I visited with my girlfriend the Botanical Garden of Cluj Napoca on 1st of December when it is the Romania's National day and it was opened, so I think that it is opened every day, I don't remember exactly how much it costs but I know that the price is somewhere under 10 Lei, and for sudents there is a discount.
