Come and try the smell of rafflesia, make a home for the bat in a pitcher of carnivore plant or find out how to fertilize a rice paddy.

Park of Senses in Žampach is open

On Saturday June 2nd we took part in festive opening of the Park of Senses in Arboretum Žampach. Several hundred visitors paid the garden their visit in the fine weather, about 200 children joined an interactive game in the whole garden and arboretum. We were especially curious about the Park of Senses, where we tried our perception firsthand: touch on the pavement made from different natural materials; we guessed what is hidden in ceramic spheres without using sight, we were refreshed by fog, we tried chimneys and acoustic mirror, managed to recognize aromatic plants on elevated flower beds… surely we will come again. Thank you for excellent inspiration and the existing cooperation!
