is located at an altitude of 1018 m. above sea level in the southern part of Kolasin
. The garden is located on a hill, and its very location provides optimal conditions for the growth of 400 species of plants, most of which are endemic, and approximately 80% of which is classified as a medicinal herb.
Botanical Garden in Kolasin appeared in 1981, thanks to the efforts of an amateur botanist Daniel Vinchek. By organizing this garden, he found the best way to preserve valuable and rare plants growing in remote places. Daniel Vinchek is helped by his wife Vera in everything.
On the area of 646 square meters is created a natural environment for the growth of trees, shrubs and herbs typical to this place. Botanical Garden staff conduct scientific research, observing the plants, photographing them and thus making files on each of their ward. All plants in the botanical garden have nameplates, that make a walk through the garden more interesting and informative.
The most important exhibit of the botanical garden is considered to be a typical for the Balkan Peninsula
, but not found anywhere else tree - Pinus Peuce with a 5-needle structure of branches.
Some plants have names associated not only with their native habitat, but also with famous Montenegrins, for example, a violet of King Nikola or a rose of Queen Milena. The founder of the garden also got such an honour, a plant Alchemilla vulgaris now has a name of Alchemilla Vincheka
