This lovely little landscaped garden used to be an orchard that provided fruits and vegetables for professors of the college. For a while there was even a chicken pen here for the same purpose. It was the department of botany that took over the garden in the 19th century and resuscitated it from its neglected state. The planted 300 different species. Destroyed again in World War II, it was yet again restored. Today there are alleys and benches and bushes and flowers and sculptures. There is a sundial and an armillary sphere, and three other scientific instruments. Altogether it has become one of the nicest places to hang out on the campus. Best of all, even though this is part of the UJMuseum, the garden is free to visit. You can just walk in and walk out.
- By Walk or cycle to here from inside Old Town.

Small and quiet place at the middle of the old city
Small calm place in the center of the city.
Great hidden sights of medieval buildings. You can look in without going to the museum. Easy to miss as you walk past.
Great place to visit
The university. Really had a fun time in there, Its a bit of a mix of different thing from Oscars to Greek pottery but we had a really funny tour guide that explained things really well so it was quite a nice experience.
