The idea of botanica gardens really deserves to be awarded. Apart of the knowledge about the plants and trees and flowers, you can also spent good time in a beautifull place. I came there with parents in childhood, than when grew up with friends and couple times alone.

Situated in the center of Minsk the Botanical Garden is a quiet and a bit mysterious place. Parents with noisy children prefer going to Gorky Park to ride a roller coaster or to admire the scenery from the height of the observation wheel, so Central Botanical Garden is popular with loving couples, lonely dreamers and photographers. Even in spring when... More

The most beautiful place in Minsk and you should visit it anyway! The park includes a great number of plants, cool amusements and lovely lake in the heart of it. It's perfect for taking photos, having fun, picnic and everybody find a place, which never forget. Try to chose a suny day and spend though an hour for a walk... More

It's a good place to promenade, to read a book, just to rest from the city fuss. The air is fresh and the flowers are beautiful in summer. The only thing that disappointed me was the fact that I couldn't find the place where to buy food, some were closed, some provided too limited choice. Except this, everything was great!

This park had better days, but now it's not well funded, so it looks dull and outdated. In summer it's packed with people and newlyweds.

Take you girlfriend -- don't go alone. Besides a wide variety of flora, there is a duck-laden pond to circumambulate and plenty of forested pathways to trek through. On the downside, the noise from the amusment park rollercoasters detracts from the peaceful, bucolic ambiance. Unfortunately, moreover, the weather in Minsk is such that apart from May, June, July and the... More

Park has got a little lake with swans and ducks, lots of benches to sit and to enjoy food or to feed squirrels :) lol. But there is one but- the... More

This wonderful garden is the place to go when you need a break from the loud (and smelly) traffic of Minsk city center. The garden has a nice collection of rhododendrons and lilacs just to mention few. You can easily spend a sunny day in the park just strolling, having a picnic and watching fellow citizens.
