  • Unfortunately when I visited the garden was completely covered with snow so even an outdoor plant was present, of course. On the other hand I found the really neat greenhouse and the Museum also, interestingly enough. Probably in the spring I could have a better judgement, but with snow is the best I can offer.

  • Too few species, not well taken care of. The alleys are old. Not too many things to see here. I was very disappointed with my visit. It is a waste of money and time. There are parks better looking than the garden in Bucharest.
  • A wild park that can be perfect for a late summer picnic. If you reach it by 1 pm you can access the Bothanical Museum (which highlights a beautiful and rich plant collections along with the fauna that lives with it) and the greenhouse (with a palm and cactus collection). Its a relaxing walk.
  • THE park.Most of the time very serene,nice views esp. by the lakes.The wild ducks are a great addition in spring,summer and early autumn.More species of plants than I could count and the occasional stray cat.Pheasants and koi fish are another summer surprise.Modest entrance fee and guards keep the place reasonably loiterer-free.No lollygagging!
  • Perfect pentru plimbari si pentru iesiri educative cu cei mai mici. Serele sunt in special interesante si merita vizitate.
  • Ar merita investiții... Puține specii :(
