Arboretum of Zirc
The Arboretum of Zirc with its english garden is very famous amongst visitors. It is located in the garden of the Cistercian Abbey of Zirc. The botanic garden lies at a 20 hectares area. The aim of creating this arboretum was to collect the plants of the Bakony. There are more than 600 tree species in the area. (for example: Chines giant redwood, Lebanon cedar and yew). A stone bridge is part of the botanic garden as well, which was built in 1759. The Cuha creek crosses the arboretum. In 1855 a new bed was dug for the stream. Today a reconstruction is going on in the garden.
