Founded in 1856, by the doctor and
naturalist Anastasie Fatu, a great patriot and man of culture, it is the first
botanical garden in Romania. During that time, it had several locations, but in
1963 was moved to its present headquarters, on Copou Hill.
With 100 hectares surface,
the Botanical Garden in Iasi includes the sector of green-houses (with
wonderful collections of tropical plants, cactuses, orchids and carnivorous
plants), the roses garden (with over 800 species from all over the world), a
recreational park, with a lake.
