Conservatory and Botanical Garden

Local name: Conservatoire et Jardin Botanique

The Botanical Garden in Geneva (Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la ville de Genève) was founded by the Swiss botanist Augustin Pyramus de Candolle in 1817. Specializes in breeding plants characteristic of the Corsica region. A collection of palm trees from various regions of the world is a tourist attraction. There is also a rock garden here.

Tourists can admire not only interesting species of plants, but also animals. In the past, only fallow deer lived here, hence the name - Parc aux Biches (Deer Park). Currently, exotic birds live in a large aviary, including parrots, flamingos and ducks are also bred.
The Geneva Botanic Garden boasts over 14,000,000 plant species. They were divided into several sectors, including arboretum, some with plants under protection and a garden of "smell and touch".
