One of the greatest botanic gardens in Europe.

So huge space for walking, taking pictures, riding on bike and etc or just laying on the grass and getting some food. It's really awesome park for families with kids, a lot activities for them. Especial beautiful here in spring! Admission pretty cheap and reasonable price, discounts for students and retirees. Close public transportation and downtown. So check it out!... More

From what we saw, this is just basically a green space in the middle of Kiev (and actually just across the street from St. Volodymyr's Cathedral. There weren't many flowers or exotic plants.

I've spent 4 hours here and I can sware, it's fantastic! Everything is clear and eye-catching. We had a good rest. But still, I don't like all these little shops. Everything should be natural here

This is one of my new favorite parks. There are many places to walk or just sit and relax here. It's located on top of a hill so there are some really nice views also.
