  • Many different reviews of Botanical Garden, want to leave your opinion. This garden belongs to the Academy of Sciences and their many employees spend holidays at the public started and I think at least because of this need to look at the Botanical Garden. Large garden, with a widely represented varieties of trees and shrubs. For people of all ages there handy everywhere placed benches and gazebo. Our visit to Minsk this August and because we certainly tsvetet siren is not visible, but the number of varieties there is very impressive. Beautiful grounds, quiet and cozy place for relaxation. By the way for retirees, not even gene entrance ticket to half the cost.

  • If we consider that Minsk itself is a very green city, there are many beautiful parks, Botanical Garden does not seem unusual. Besides the entrance fee is not the smallest amount, and see in it about the same as in other parks. Yes, follow the alley on the types of trees, a good greenhouse, beautiful pond in the center of the Park. But to make it straight, "Oh, how beautiful," there is no such thing. At least I didn't get hooked. I advise you to go to any city park free impressions are the same.
