Carsiana Botanical Garden is located within a doline in the municipality of Sgonico-Zgonik and occupies an area of 5,000 m2 and plays host to c. 600 plant species found in the Karst. Along the footpaths in the garden the visitor can get to know the main Karstic environments including Karstic scrubland, open dry grassland and its sea-cliffs which have been carefully reconstructed taking advantage of the microclimatic conditions and the geomorphology that the site offers.
