  • A nice botanic garden, some interesting flowers but nothing too special. If it's a nice day outside and you feel like walking around breathing fresh air, you can spend about two hours there.
  • The first thing you've got to know, it's huge. The second thing you've got to know, it's extremely beautiful. Great place to see many sorts of flowers, enjoy stunning views of Dnipro river or simply lie down and relax.
  • It's actually a nice place to visit, especially during spring and blossoming. The territory is vast but poorly organized. Big portion taken by Russian church. There is admission fee, very moderate but frankly not so much in return for those money. There are no caffes, shops, snacks or even water to drink. Nice nature but shame how badly it is managed.
  • One of the best places in Kiev (Kyiv), its a big garden , you can find different plants and trees with the scientific name on them. A perfect place for couples and families, its calm and green !, The entrance ticket is just 40uah (less than 2$) .
  • Magnificent magnolias. Quite expensive entrance fee. Very few benches available. Quite clean.
