  • Also in autumn it is worth a visit to the Gruga. The colorful game of discoloring leaves rich from green to red, yellow and brown. Various mushrooms can be seen. Even some toadstools. They are toxic, but they just look fascinating. Numerous shrubs and trees carry fruit bodies in a wide variety of colours. And if the weather plays along, you can see a great evening red.

  • Massive ground. Perfect place for kids. So many children playareas are there. Animal feed area is best. Different species of owl , flamingo and lot more animals n birds are there. Train ride is too good
  • Amazing Park. Beautiful plants and flowers. Well worth the money. We've spent 5 hours there and maybe saw a 10th of it. So many hidden treasures. Lovely pet area. Staff at entrance, train and restaurants extremely helpful and friendly. We'll definitely go again.
