Reviewed 15 November 2017 via mobile

This Botanical Garden was established in 1936,during the Soviet times. It was an endeavor of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS) branch Institute of Botany. The garden was developed over 16 hectares of land. Over 2,000 species of trees, shrubs and flowering plants are housed in greenhouses and open areas. The number of species may not seem impressive but when you realize that Baku was once barren desert with no flora or fauna you start appreciating this number. The effort has been made to preserve the gene pool of these species and to introduce new one. Thus you can find new areas like the Rose Corner and the Medicinal Plants Section. A must visit place if you wish to appreciate how this desert city was turned into a green one.
