Exotic Plants in Winter

The Polish Academy of Sciences Botanical Gardens in Powsin near Warsaw are just the ticket to brighten up a gray Polish winter. Zielony Raj (Green Paradise) is a 2,000-square-meter greenhouse with a rich collection of exotic plants, including some splendid agave, aloe and cacti specimens. These range from creepers to spherical shapes to several-meters-high columns. There are also several species and types of orchid in full bloom.

Zielony Raj is now hosting two exhibitions. A Meeting with Indian Gods is a display of 17 bronze and stone statues. In the Shadow of Borobudur exhibits the latest additions to the Museum of Asia and the Pacific Ocean, including some sacred sculptures from Java and Bali.

The Botanical Gardens are open to visitors on weekends and from Feb. 9 to Feb. 24 (the school winter vacation in Mazovia province) during winter. Opening hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
