Directions to Arboretum Borová hora

There is also the biggest collection of rose plants in Slovakia.

The Arboretum is situated in the middle part of the basin of the river Hron , about 3 km (1.88 mi) from the centre of Zvolen and it is administered as the scientific and pedagogical department of the Technical University of Zvolen.

The Arboretum was established in 1965 and has been built up since then. Its area is almost 50 ha (123.55 ac). It contains more than 450 wood species and their 1,100 forms, in total more than 20,000 single plants/trees.

The collection of rose plants in this Arboretum is especially interesting and valuable. It consists of more than 600 varieties, in total more than 4,000 bushes and the aim is to archive rose varieties bred in the former Kingdom of Austria and Hungary, Czech territory and Slovakia and what is more, to collect resistant varieties from abroad.

The collection of 660 species of cactuses and succulent plants from Mexico and Southern America, kept in greenhouses, intrigues visitors as well. With regard to the extremely high value of concentrated collections, the Borová hora Arboretum was designated the Protected Area in 1981.

There are two important events organized in the Arboretum in the course of the year during which the Arboretum is open at weekends as well:

Week of rhododendrons (end of May), Week of roses (beginning of June).
