This free park is a large recreational park rather than a botanical garden ( a place where plants and trees are normally labelled so that visitors can recognise them). Coming from London with its large but very plain parks, this place I found very interesting. There are walking trails, a spring and pool area where many people were cooling off... More

We decided to visit this park (metro Botanicheskiy Sad/ Botanical Garden) based on other reviews. To our surprise we didn't find this place as traditional Botanical Garden. Most locals (unless they live in this area) does not know about existence of Botanical Garden in Karkov and does not consider this park as a Botanical Garden. I also don't understand why... More

Nature, the source. Everything is very well-groomed. In good weather there are a lot of people, but you can retire in trails. Bring bottel to take some water with you
