  • A great place to get acquainted with a variety of plants. Everything is very clearly and accessibly. You can simply take a walk and relax.

  • A very beautiful place to visit, and incredibly cheap to get in. The museum didn't appear to be open on the day we visited, and we only saw part of the hothouses (we got ushered out by staff who didn'...  more »

  • 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 :(
