The big garden on about 10 min walking from metro Druzhby Narodiv. Fantastic place to walk and morning running. From the morning there are huge amount of visitors. They come to see the big collection of blooming in May lilac trees.

It was lovely to have a large garden space in the city to explore and the park was quite busy, but there were not the botanical displays as I have encountered in other botanical gardens. Most of the plants were not identified and the area felt a little run down.

I think that spent there more than couple hours and even got tired of walking in the garden. There plenty of attractive venues and passes where one can keep walking throught the huge trees and flowerbeds.

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.
