  • The botanical garden was a beautiful garden with a wide variety of plants and herbs within different segments and species. However, the paths, statues and buildings are very outdated and maintenance....  more »
  • It does depend on the season you are going to visit the Botanical Garden. I used to be here quite a lot in my childhood. It is quite a big and really nice garden. I definitely suggest going on the tulips' blooming season. Breathtakingly beautiful, large variety of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils. Same, later in the year with roses and dahlias.
  • Go and walk around. Good and well maintained garden. The choice of flowers is really good. They have one of the best selection of roses I have seen. There is a nominal entry fee although free for students. Some parts of park are designed for runs and long walks. The directions are well placed and is quite clean.
