Once again, this year, Bundek Lake will host the most beautiful colours and ooze with the scents of beautiful flower arrangements when the 51st Floraart International Garden Exhibition opens its doors on May 30th and kerp them open until June 5th. The exhibition will take place at Bundek Lake on a surface spreading across 30 hectares where the workers of the Zrinjevac Garden Company will plant more than 250 thousand seeds. The exhibition will present more than 150 exhibitors from Croatia and guests from ten countries.
The story of the Floraart garden show is the original brand of Zagreb city. Every year, it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors who are going to Bundek to buy new seeds and to see a new design of horticulture.
The City of Zagreb and flowers are in love from the late 19th century. It was preceded by the development of a park culture in the city, with the opening of Maksimir Park at the end of the 18th century, as well as the compound of city parks, the so-called Lenuci Horseshoe or the Green Horseshoe, which is an important aspect of Zagreb’s urban identity.
The Floraart International Garden Exhibition also features a competition for the exhibitors – the Croatian Florists’ Cup, as well as an international competition for high school students and a contest for the best house garden, which is open to all citizens of Zagreb and Zagreb County.
