Monaestry garden

Medieval Mediteranean Garden of St Lawrence Monastery (MMG) in Šibenik

was restored and opened on 6th November 2007 after being forgotten about for a hundred years. MMG is an integral part of the St Lawrence Monastery and an integral part of the programs that the Sibenik Private Gimnasium has developed.

The restoration project of MMG was completed by renowned landscape architect, Dragutin Kiš, who received the Millenium Award for Flora in Japan, 2000.

This particular type of garden is notably rare, as it is the only one of its kind in Croatia, and there a vey few in this part of Europe.

MMG follows an established medieval design: a cross design for a pathway, small centrally located water feature, with low growing varieties framed by boxtree and beautiful spectacular old varieties aromatic rose standards. There are four sections filled with medicinal plants and herbs. A special place has been assigned for our assortment of thyme in a wonderful array of red, purple, silver, light and dark green foliage.  The sensational combination of colours is a true work of art.  Another notable attraction in the garden are the capers.  Legend has it that Juraj Dalmatinac brought the first capers to Šibenik.  They have been planted within the gaps and cracks in the stone walls as a homage to the great builder.  The inclusion of this simple medieval plant  we are able to tie together the main features of this region; stone; flora; Juraj Dalmatinac.

 

     

 

 

Šibenik has claims on another significant historical figure, Robert Visiani Šibenčanin. He was one of the most famous European botanists of the 12th Century.  A Professor at the famous University of Padua.

From its inception the project to restore MMG was fueled by the objective to have the site open to the public. With this in mind we created a number of educational programs for schools and for organised tours. The MMG is situated within the St. Lawrence Monastery complex which means that during your visit to the space you can tour Our Lady's Grotto, the Church of St Lawrence, the Monastery as well as a cafe, restaurant, and souvernir shop.

Educational Programs for Schools

Workshops have been developed for school groups from pre-school, primary, secondary, and further education levels. 
Expert facilitators are provided for all workshops.
We do recommend that after visiting the garden, groups undertake a sightseeing workshop of the Old City of Šibenik with our professional guides. Participants visit seven sights in the Old City with their facilitator and are provided worksheets as well. 
Both activities are part of our project to create a City of Learning.

Group Tour

For both domestic and international visitors. Organised tours of the garden with a facilitator including materials are available.
