__

The Open Space The Botanical Garden “Jevremovac” contains a plant fund that includes more than 2000 different species.

HISTORY

At the suggestion of Josip Pančić, by the decision of the Ministry of Education and Church Affairs of the Principality of Serbia, Botanical Garden in Belgrade was founded in 1874.

Even before the founding of the institution, Pancic had a small botanical garden in the courtyard of Belgrade’s Liceo, for teaching at the Great School where he taught botany in the frame of the periodic history.

After the establishment of the institution, Bašti was given a pay at Dorćol, along the banks of the Danube, which did not show a good solution given the nearness of the riverbed and the possibility of being flooded.

After two great floods that had taken place in those years and completely destroyed plant estate, Pancic sought better accommodation for Bašte.

Unfortunately, a great naturalist, a preacher and first administrator of the first botanical garden in Serbia, died in 1888, not waiting to see Bašta safely housed in a new location.

Knowing the problems that Pancic had about raising a first botanical garden in Serbia, king Milan Obrenovic, in 1889, he gave his grandfather’s estate, inherited from the lord of Jevrem Obrenovic, for the need to raise the botanical garden. The only condition was to call the garden by his dedi Jevremovac.
