  • The Botanical Garden is located on the outskirts of the city. In the garden is always very fresh air, cool even in the hot weather. There are plenty of benches for resting, you can lay a blanket on the grass. In the garden there is a bicycle rental, ice cream, cotton candy and popcorn. On the territory there is a cafe and a small playground with trampolines and swings. Beautiful lakes. In the garden immersed in the atmosphere of nature and tranquility. You can play active games with ball, badminton or just podbegat′ on the green grass. Entrance 10 Lei.
