The park is a National Heritage Site and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Upon your visit, you will see original garden landscapes, ponds and streams, rocky parts and spacious valleys. All in all, the park is a unique place to spend some time in the nature, as the plants in the park have been specifically selected and grown for many years.
