The TAL 2000 Botanical Garden was established in 1998 and is the first and only private botanical garden in Slovenia. In it you can see: - The largest collection of (wild) aquatic plants in Slovenia - The only publicly displayed collection of poisonous plants - Lesser known medicinal plants - A small collection of minerals and stones - Freshwater animals, various types of nesting birds and other curiosities
Other events and get-togethers can also be held at the botanical garden.
TAL 2000 lies south of Maribor, between the towns of Rače and Pragersko, in the village of Zgornja Gorica. There are several ways to get to the garden: when travelling on the motorway (Maribor–Ljubljana) take the exit for Rače or Slovenska Bistrica-North. When coming from the direction of Ptuj (if you take a turn off the Ptuj–Slovenska Bistrica road) make a turn at the intersection for Rače or Spodnja Gorica.
A more detailed description of how to get here can be found on the garden’s website. The garden’s high season is from mid-May to late September. During the high season the garden is open: - Every day of the week for groups with reservations (at least 10 participants), according to agreement. - On Sundays from 14:00 to 18:00 for individual visitors.
Groups with reservations can also visit the garden during the low season. In the event of bad weather, the botanical garden is closed.
