3. The Parragh arboretum

The privately held arboretum in the heart of the city is only seasonally open to the public.

The agricultural engineer Farkas Parragh who initially founded the closed garden space to serve as a nursery, left it to the Hungarian State upon his death. The majority of the garden has been artificially designed to resemble a park and hosts many of the trees native to Hungary but also some exotic species. In 2002 the “Forest retreat” was added in order to serve as a service area within the establishment.

The garden is only seasonally open to the public and school and kindergarten classes can use the premises for educational purposes and events upon booking an appointment.
