  • We walked around the arboretum with my daughter for five hours! Beginning of May, many beautiful flowering bushes and trees! Park well-groomed, there are tablets near plants. And what is very nice-here preserved the spirit of romanticism of the past era: in the pavilions that survived from the Soviet era) the territory is large, climb to the top terrace may seem difficult. But there is a funicular. The price, however, 300 rubles. More expensive than the entrance to the park. Vwill admired the peacocks, swans and other animals, which in a scanty amount, but still lives in Dendropark. The lower part of the park is much smaller than the upper area. There is an aquarium building. Too bad it was closed. Whether we got so, whether it was closed completely-I can not say.

  • Due to lack of time managed to visit only part of the park, early closes. I recommend to spend on this place all day, very beautiful nature.

  • There is no infrastructure. Half of the arboretum is busy building. Exorbitant prices for the funicular leading to the upper entrance to the arboretum. The elevator hasn't been invented yet. If you are with small children, be prepared that you will need to first lift the stroller to the third floor, and then down from the fifth floor on foot.
