hortus botanicus leiden

Leiden University was established in 1575.
So in 1587, they asked permission from the mayor of Leiden
to establish the hortus academics, which was granted in 1590.

This is one of the oldest gardens in the world
with collection of plants from different sources
including the famous Dutch East India Company…

The garden is beautiful and you can sit and
admire the beautiful flowers or beautiful boat houses
across the canal…
