The „Hortulus” Thematic Gardens in Dobrzyca are a vast complex including: the only Thematic Gardens in Poland available for visiting, the Decorative Plants Nursery and the Gardening Centre.
The „Hortulus” Thematic Gardens
28 various thematic gardens with a total area of 4 ha are available to visitors. The first gardens were established in 1993, and the most recent ones, such as the water garden in the Gaudi style, in 2009. In total there are over several dozen thousand species and varieties of plants here. Due to the particularly temperate climate zone in which the gardens are located (mild winters, a lot more precipitation than in other regions of the country), they feature exotic species unique to Poland. The gardens have received numerous awards, including from the Polish Tourist Organisation.
The most distinctive gardens are the Japanese garden, the French garden, the rosary, the gardens of the senses, including the water, herbal, scent, and shadow garden. The latest ones are the forest garden and the water garden in the style of the Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi. They are the perfect background for wedding and event photography. The themes of the gardens start with a family and warm country style to exotic lines, colours and scents, such as the scents of the Mediterranean garden, and ends with the incredible and sophisticated arrangements of the water, shadow, and scent gardens.
