Hortus botanicus Leiden Reviews
Увлекательной и полезной получилась прогулка по университетскому ботаническому саду Лейдена. Находится сад на юго-востоке исторической части города, считается старейшим в стране. Поразило не столько р... more »A fascinating and rewarding walk through Leiden University Botanic Garden. The garden is located in the southeast of the historical part of the city, considered the oldest in the country. It was not so much the variety of the flora presented that impressed, but the quality of the organization and layout of the green spaces. Sites with plants outdoors, greenhouses are well located, alleys and places for rest are well prepared. Very convenient for both professionals and ordinary visitors.

Jaargetijde maakt niet uit voor bezoek, het is altijd mooi en interessant. more »For everyone who loves nature, it's very beautiful. Lots of plants in various species. Seasons doesn't matter for visit, it's always beautiful and interesting.
It's easy to spend hours in the botanical gardens, so many little nooks to sit and relax or read or have a picnic by the water and the plants....So much to see and it's all beautifully presented with good information available. The recently redesigned entrance and cafe is also wonderful.
Very beautiful and filled botanical garden. Lots of interesting plants and flowers to see, both in greenhouses as in the open air. And there is a nice restaurant too.
