Description: One of the more striking things about this beautiful botanical garden is...
One of the more striking things about this beautiful botanical garden is the fact that it is located right next to an industrial centre, complete with cooling towers, chimneys churning out everything nasty-looking, and nasty smells. That small problem aside, the garden is well kept and absolutely beautiful in the spring. While having a stroll, you'll come across impressive pine trees, a lily pond with waterfall and a herb garden. Bucharestians treat the gardens as a park, and on warm afternoons you may see more young lovers than plants. The huge glasshouses are open Tue, Thr, Sat, Sun, 09:00 - 13:00. Take bus 336 from Universitate to get there. Admission 10,000 lei (5,000 for children).

The Botanical Garden is situated next to a heavy industrial area. There is a green house, but it was closed and looked as if it had been a long time since it was last open. The whole experience was quite depressing.

It is a depressing place, with ill-kept flower beds, dying plants, terrible potholes, lots of stray dogs protecting their territory and becoming aggressive if you cross their path. Absolutely a waste of time. What a pity!

Great atmosphere, nice flowers, cheap entry price. Think of it as a park rather than a Botanical Garden.

The Botanical Garden of Bucharest is more than 150 years old. There are situated an Botanical Institute and a Botanical Museum. Also, there you can admire some external and internal sectors, where are exposed many plants from all the world. The entrance prices areb very cheap - around 1 - 1,5 euro.

Not as impressive as Cluj-Napoca's botanical garden, but pleasant and educative.
