"Jevremovac" Arboretum is the unit of the Faculty of Biology of the University of Belgrade. Founded in 1874 by the decree of the Ministry of Education of the Kingdom of Serbia, at the suggestion of Mr. Josif Pančić, its first manager thereafter. In the year 1889, the King Milan Obrenović donated the estate (inherited from his grandfather named Jevrem) to the Great School in Belgrade for the purpose of construction of Botanic Garden, provided it is named "Jevremovac". It exists to this day at the same location and under the same name.
The Arboretum spreads over the area of 5 hectares, where on an open space there are over 250 species of trees and bushes, local, European and exotic plants, and the total plant population now includes about 500 trees, bushes and herbage plants. Besides the open space, the Arboretum covers the Green house and the Institute for Botanic premises. (administrative building, herbarium, library, lecture hall, laboratories).
The green house, built in 1892, covers the area of 500 m2. At the time of its construction it was one of the biggest and most beautiful green houses in this part of Europe. Numerous tropic and sub-tropic plants are being nursed, some of which worth mentioning are: Phoenix Canariensis, Chamaerops Humilis, Cereus Peruvinianus...
The Herbarium accommodates rich collection of plants originating from the Balkan peninsula and the entire Europe containing around 120,000 herbarium sheets and over 300,000 exsiccates. The library is one of the oldest and the most abundant one in this area. Apart from 200 scientific and professional magazines it also accommodates over 6,000 books.

evo moram da ti cestitam za ovu prekrasnu impresiju iz botanickog vrta. Prekrasan detajl koji pokaze sve divote ispod vode, na vodi i iznad vode. Sve u jednom, prekrasno zelenilo na vodi i okolici, kamenje i predivno plavo nebo sa oblacima. Predivna kompozicija izvrstnog motiva i kvalitete!
Lep pozdrav i vikend,

Zdravo Zorica! Great shot, amazing note. I like botanic gardens, even if it's not something that corresponds to the Real Man routine, ha!

A pleasant composition, where the elements are combined very well in the glare of the water. There is a lot of naturalness on the scene, well-defined colors and smooth panning.

Pa u kom si skrovištu čuvala ovaj dragulj! Zaista fantastična kompozicija, divne boje i sjajni kontrasti. Lepe su kronje koje se ogledaju u vodi, lepo je zeleno lišće, ali mene najviše oduševljava kamenje, koje i inače obožavam:)

excellent composition where the game of reflections is very attractive and of great quality.
The water of the pool seems a mirror confusing the reality with the fiction. Great details and textures. The quality of the image is excellent.

I have seen the other shots taken at botanical garden but most I liked this one, the sky looks wonderful in the water.
Benedict (7076) 2008-03-13 21:54
that's a very artistic compo, Zorica. the sky reflection taking half of the capture and the other half, stones on the pond bed so clearly seen. that yellow leaf's inclusion adds the richness and depth. and the water plant (waterlily i supposed) coming out so alive!
kermit350 (9016) 2010-01-10 2:28
hello Zorica, very good subject, which lets guess more than of shown, sincerely

The colors, layers, shapes, highlight details and shadow details in this image are so exciting that I had to stop and take a breath when I saw it. It is SO beautiful and the small yellow leaf at the bottom right stirs my core with intrigue and admittedly envy. I wish that I had taken that photograph. And that is the greatest compliment a photographer can give to another photographer. Well done and thank you for sharing!
