  • On the first day of stay in Minsk visited the Botanical Garden. A very nice impression! All bad! Blossoms and smells sweet! Peace and quiet! You can stroll endlessly. Pleasant impression and Orangery. Although would have liked more. Highly recommend for walks and enjoy the beauty!

  • We were lucky to see the splendor of gladioluses, roses and other (already almost autumn) colours! Really liked the clean, manicured promenades, guidelines, posters-all for comfortable rest and visit the garden! You can eat ice cream, sit back and just dream among the plants. Orangery too!
