A true gem of Budapest, the botanical garden of the Eötvös University, called “Füvészkert”, lies hidden in the middle of District VIII. If you are zealous about cactus shows, orchid days or botanical clubs, this magnificent garden is your place to be. Here, you’ll find the largest water lilies in town capable of bearing the weight of an adult woman. The story of Füvészkert arches back to the 1700s; in its heyday, it was home to more than 12,000 plant species. The garden was also an important location in the world-famous Hungarian novel “Paul Street Boys” by Ferenc Molnár.
Tip: If you would like to buy plants and flowers here, pop into Fitoland found inside Füvészkert.
