Arboretum Trsteno

The oldest arboretum in the world has weathered war, fire, and Game of Thrones.

Arboretum TrstenoAn Ancient Verdant Escape

This protected natural monument dates back to the late 15th century when a local noble family requested ship captains bring back seeds and plants from their travels. The 15 m aqueduct erected in 1492 is still in use today. Centuries of tranquility were broken in 1991 when the Yugoslav People's Army launched a series of attacks and set the arboretum afire, destroying a large part of it. The arboretum was further severely damaged in 2000 by a forest fire. The pride of the arboretum, two Oriental Planes that are over 500 years old, survived both disasters undamaged. Today, the arboretum is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful walk, gaze out over the Adriatic, or hunt for locations used in Game of Thrones.
