What to know about the Dendrological Park of Oradea, Romania
The park is situated in the north of Oradea Fortress and is open to the public since April 10.
Because of it's location near the Oradea Fortress, an important historical monument, the City Hall added information panels with history of the Oradea Fortress.
The landscaping was made with organic materials only, such as tree bark and natural stone, there is also a vast collection of plants, which is giving it's dendrological value.
Near the Golden Bastion of Oradea Fortress, is a small lake with aquatic vegetation and water lily flowers
This is a small step in giving back it's value, there is plenty of restoration needed to be done to the Oradea Fortress.
