Huge park, not outstanding but a nice stroll if you take the $2 minibus ride for a 30 minute stroll. Beautiful winter trees

There are plenty of parks in and around Kiev. But this botanical garden is really worth visiting. Entrance fee 20 Hr, open from 8 AM to 8 PM in summer. Different gardens are shown. The most interesting ones include the Korean one, the rose and the flower gardens. Do not miss the church located in the park. It has amazing... More

Nestled in acres of luscious greenery, the Gardens are a great and invigorating way to spend a few hours with the family. Gorgeous views stretch out far into the distance and the collection of colourful flowers are mirrored perfectly with the dazzlingly constructed churches to pleasantly assault the senses. We love strolling around early in the morning where you can... More

Nice place, amazing view. Different trees and flowers from the different parts of the world. The nice smell of magnolia, lilac etc. Saint Trinity Monastery (150 years) is in the Botanical Garden. The monks with the Youth public organization together help children a sick cancer, to the children to the orphans in child's houses.

It's a lovely place yet big and spacious, bring some food for the squirrels and make sure you find a spot from where Vidubitsky monastery can be seen. If you go in spring and lilacs bloom, it must be spellbinding. A bit far on foot from the nearest metro.

If there is sunny skies outside and you really don't know where to go as there are not many places in Kyiv actually for a visit with your family - go to Grishko park and enjoy park layout with nature devoted to different parts of this and other countries: crimea, far east, carpathian mountains. Try to not mention poor quality... More

This Garden occupies a huge territory, which is used very wisely: a great number of groves, bushes, pine forests, valleys, flowers and other botanical masterpieces ;) it's a good idea to go there early in the morning as there are not so many people ;) fantastic for photo sessions, romantic walks and family get-togethers ;) if the rose garden and...

Loved it, very peaceful, you need to make time as it is a very big place, some of the gardens need attention from the maintanance department, there also some very beautiful views of the Dnipro too! Well serviced by the trollybus's and the service buses.

I love this place. Now, in spring, all the trees are in blossom - magnolias, apple-trees, lilacs, tulips, daffodils... So it's overcrowded, particularly when lilacs blossoms. But the park is beautiful in all seasons. Believe me, I know it, because I go there for jogging at least 2 times a week all year. The park is fairly big. You can... More
