EDUCATIONAL NATURE TRAIL: ON THE TRAIL OF FLEISCHMANN'S PARSNIP

EDUCATIONAL NATURE TRAIL: ON THE TRAIL OF FLEISCHMANN'S PARSNIP

As a result of effective co-operation between the University of Ljubljana Botanical Garden and Ljubljana Castle public institute in the year that the Slovenian capital bears the title Ljubljana – European Green Capital 2016, a new educational nature trail has been created which we have named 'On the Trail of Fleischmann's Parsnip'. In addition to their fascinating flora, both institutions are also linked by the endemic plant Fleischmann’s Parsnip, which was once found on the Castle Hill but disappeared from there. It was conserved only in the Botanical Garden, all the way up to 2012 when it began to bloom again at Ljubljana Castle.
Guided tours along the educational nature trail are available all year round, on which participants learn about the diversity of plant species in the Botanical Garden and on Castle Hill, and finally they get to know the fascinating history of Ljubljana Castle – a symbol of the Slovenian capital. Photo: Jože Bavcon
