Croatia is a small country in the south-eastern Europe, bordering the Adriatic Sea (the Mediterranean), between European Union (Italy, Slovenia and Hungary) and Bosnia Herzegovina. Even though its total area is only 56,542 square km, Croatia is very diverse in geography, culture, flora and fauna. The capital is Zagreb, located in the central continental part of the country.


The Botanical Garden of the University of Zagreb (Faculty of Science) is located in the centre of Zagreb, just one tram station from the Central Railway Station, or a 10-minute walk from the main square (The Jelacic Square). Public entrances are located along the northern side of the Garden, from the Mihanoviceva Street (at the end of Gundulićeva St.).
