  • If you were already in the Botanical Garden and have an idea of what it is, then forget it and be sure to visit the Apothecary garden in Moscow on Peace Avenue. A completely different concept, an interesting shape decisions on a small area. Able to touch some of the plants. And concerts, promotions, fairs, which visibly brighten your leisure. Recommend!
