Volcji Potok Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 32 photos


The Volcji Potok Arboretum is located on the edge of the Kamniško polje plain. It is one of Slovenia's most visited botanical gardens, worth visiting at any time of the year. Lying on an 80-hectare site, it features 4,500 perennial flower, bush and tree species from around the world.


The Arboretum's numerous plant beds have been conceived in such a way that different plant species complement each other, but are at the same time displayed in all their individual beauty. The Arboretum's energy fields are believed to have a beneficial action on the human body's energy centres.


The earliest know mention of the place was in 1220, when a castle stood on the site of the present gardens. In the 17th century, a two-storey mansion was built at the foot of the nearby hill. The only preserved and restored parts of the mansion are the garden pavilion, the mansion chapel and the stairway which used to lead to the mansion park, which was located on the site of the present Arboretum.

    Great pics, but you should add some descriptions. Where is this place? Is it a park or a village? Ciao!
