Trsteno Arboretum Tours

star-5
43 Reviews
Trsteno Arboretum
Built by nobles in the late 15th century, this verdant arboretum is one of Dubrovnik’s top tourist attractions. In addition to plants sourced from the four corners of the globe, the garden also has a 50-foot-long (15 meter) aqueduct used for irrigation purposes, a baroque Neptune fountain, and a pavilion overlooking the Adriatic.
 
The Basics
The Trsteno Arboretum is a tranquil getaway for travelers based in Dubrovnik. Many guided tours of Dalmatia combine a visit to the garden with trips to nearby sights, such as the walled village of Ston and its salt ponds.
 
The HBO series, Game of Thrones, used the gardens as a filming location, serving as the on-screen Red Keep Palace garden. For this reason, Trsteno Arboretum is often visited on Game of Thrones-themed tours, which typically go to other filming locations, such as Dubrovnik Old Town and Lovrijenac Fortress. Some Game of Thrones experiences venture as far north as Split to visit additional filming sites, such as Klis Fortress and Diocletian’s Palace.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Trsteno Arboretum is a must for nature lovers.
  • Though the foliage provides ample shade, bring along sunscreen as the sun’s rays can be strong here, especially in summer.
  • Pick up a map of the garden at the ticket office to help you find your way around.
  • Some, though not all of the paths, in the arboretum are wheelchair accessible.
 
How to Get There
The drive to Trsteno Arboretum, situated about 12 miles (19 kilometers) from Dubrovnik, follows a scenic coastal road and should take about 25 minutes. Bus numbers 12, 15, 21, 22, and 35 all depart from Dubrovnik bus station.
 
When to Get There
Trsteno Arboretum is busiest in summer. Yet, even in the peak months of July and August, the gardens are calm and quiet when compared to bustling Dubrovnik. They are open year-round and are especially pretty in autumn, when the fall colors set in.
 
Highlights of the Arboretum
Among the most striking—and unmissable—plants at Trsteno are the pair of 500-year-old plane trees near the entrance. These two leafy giants tower to a height of more than 195 feet (60 meters). Within the garden itself, you’ll find a hedge maze to puzzle your way out of, as well as exotic palms and ponds filled with fish, frogs, and lilies.

Smiley Game of Thrones driving tour

Smiley Game of Thrones driving tour

When the producers of Game of Thrones series chose Dubrovnik as the location of the Westeros capital, King’s Landing, they couldn’t do better! Old Town Dubrovnik is so magical that it looks like it has leapt from the pages of addictive series of George R. R Martin’s novels. Well, that’s not a coincidence if you know that Dubrovnik was also a capital city of extinct Republic of Ragusa.
