  • One of the biggest botanic gardens of Europe.Nice to walk to see the plants to feel a clear atmosphere.  more »
  • Entrance with little burden. I visited the gardens with snow which means that I saw only the plants that existed in closed buildings. Think of spring and after that you are all blooming, and the rest will be amazing spaces

  • Enjoyed a walk in the Park! Entrance for a nominal fee. It was interesting to walk around the gardens, all plants are signed. There were few people in the Park, and that is a plus, perfect for romantic walks.

  • 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 :(
