Joannes Antonius Scopoli,  the first mining physician, a natural scientist of European importance did his best work in Idrija. Botany as such and the knowledge about it in the land of Carniola mainly originated from Idrija.

Just for the reason of Scopoli living and working in Idrija, the previous statement had a permanent influence on the history of botany. Other names, also strongly connected to Idrija in the field of botany are: Hacquet, Hladnik, Freyer, Dolliner, Dežman, Glowacki etc. Because all these facts were not esteemed enough, the idea of establishing a small garden was born to show all the plants our botanists had discovered or provided their description for the first time. The botanical garden is located just above the famous 'kamšt', beside the Joseph's Shaft building before the 'rake' water channel.
