Botanical Garden in Zagreb is a large, English-style garden created in 1890 by Antun Heinz. The garden, covering an area of 50.000 sq meters, is an oasis of tranquility in which to escape the bustle of the town, and for this reason it is a popular place in which to stroll. There are about 10.000 plant species here, including around 1.800 tropical plants from all over the world, with Asia particularly well represented.
Kumrovec was the birthplace of Marshal Tito, born Josip Broz in 1892. His house was turned into a museum in 1953. We can see the furniture and household goods which belonged to his family. In the square in front of the house is a monument to Tito. Along with other village houses, Tito’s birthplace is now part of a folk museum, the Ethnological Museum – Staro Selo, which means old village. The houses are furnished with household goods and utensils of the time.
