Scopolijev vrt - the botanical garden

Print Add to travel planner
J.A. Scopoli was the first miners' doctor in Idrija and an important European natural scientist who accomplished the best of his work in Idrija.

The botanical knowledge og the former region Carniola originated mostly from Idrija. The town gained its place in botanical history due to Scopoli. The following names from the botanical world are also strongly connected with the town: Hacquet, Hladbik, Freyer, Dolliner, Dežman, Glowacki etc.

As these historical facts were not appreciated enough, a botanical garden presenting the plants, discovered or first described by these botanists, was founded in 2004.
