Very beautiful park with lots of winding paths you can get comfortably lost in. Also something like a little mini zoo sort of place, a playground and a cafe. Great spot to cool down a bit on a hot day.

The park is nice to walk in, it was hard to find an exit becuase some of the gates were unexpectedly closed. Lots of mosquitos but plenty of benches to sit on and rest.

This was an okay place to visit and an easy way to spend some time away from the intense heat in summer. Whilst the park is okay, it is no where near as nice as the parks I am used to in London. There is...More

Another walk in the park....literally. There is a small zoo area but get ready to get lost. The maps are confusing as all hell to say the least and the coffee shop is permanently closed.

the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia

Hi Seraphina, I was at the National Garden at the end of May, so I don't know whether it's been reopened (and also hadn't heard that it had been closed). Changing of the guard nearby is fun just in case, as is the nearby... More
