1minút, 3sekúnd

On Wednesday, October 18, 2023, we welcomed the staff of the National Botanical Garden of Vácrátót, Hungary headed by their director Vince Zsigmond, to our Botanical Garden. Together we visited our greenhouses with exhibitions of tropical and subtropical plants, the exterior with the collections of ornamental and utility plants, as well as trees. At the lunchtime, we discussed activities to date and visions for the future.

At the same time Diana Gris Emese, Consul of the Consulate General of the Republic of Hungary in Košice, honoured us with her presence. She highlighted the importance of the cooperation between the botanical gardens.

The botanical garden in the village of Vácrátót, with its almost 13,000 species of plants growing in open spaces and in greenhouses, ranks among the botanical gardens with the most diverse collection of living plants. As part of a two-hundred-year-old historic garden, this collection is dedicated to research, education and conservation of natural and cultural heritage, with the aim of preserving protected plant species and genetic resources.

That is why we are delighted to cooperate with such an important institution. We firmly believe that our cooperation will grow also in the framework of the recently prepared application and submitted joint project in the INTERREG Hungary – Slovakia scheme.
