The Botanic Garden opened during the reign of Al. I. Cuza. However, in 1870, it moved to Şuţu Garden. Dr. Dimitrie Brândza succeeded in bringing the Botanic Garden back to its former premises in 1884. The garden comprises a museum, an ornamental sector (plants from the Far East, North America), a dendrological sector (100 - 150 year old plants), Mediterranean flora, medicinal and technical plants, tropical plants, and mountain plants. The greenhouse complex comprises tropical and subtropical flora from Africa, India, Indonesia, and South America.
