Great & huge in size park located between "city jungles" Unbelievably freshair, lot of theme gardens to visit and a lot of place just to enjoy laying on the grass! One of my favourite places in Kyiv. Especially great place to spend with babies & kids!

Quite big territory with different kinds of plants, not many of them are very rare or unique, but it is still a good place to be, to walk, to run etc. Price for the entrance is about 1$

A popular place for locals to have photo-sessions and calm walks. Impossible to find if you are a tourist as it is not well presented. Worth a try if you are in Kiev for a considerable amount of time.

Sadly the greenhouse was closed when we arrived -- even though it was supposed to be open according to hours they posted! Most of the place can be designated as a park (a pretty one, no doubt), with a section or two serving as your typical botanical garden. There were some rooms with birds and reptiles (need to pay an... More

So, first of all - there are two botanical gardens in Kyiv. This one, the larger one, is outside of the city center and off the banks of the Dniepr. It's a decent garden, but VERY large and the not very well mapped out for visitors - so prepare to be lost and to spend a couple hours here. For... More

Favourite place to visit in spring. I am always excited by abloom trees (lilac, magnolias etc.). People living in Kiev have a joke, that every spring it`s a must for women to take a pictire "how I smell the lilac :) Honestly, If you are tired of bustling city and hectic days, just spend a day in this garden. Here... More

Returned here in 2016 after a 10 year absence. The Botanical Garden remains just as pretty as I remembered it. Extensive grounds encompass a small church as well as the larger Vydubychi Monastery. Buy some ice cream and a soft drink or cotton candy and enjoy everything that the Botanical Garden has to offer. Admission is 30 Hryvnia per adult... More

I spent a few hours here just wandering through the gardens. A lovely display of tulips and many others. There are also great views of the city and Robert to be had in places. There is a tropical plant house, orchid house and a small bird house.

Grishko Central Botanical Garden looks the most perfect in the warm seasons like summer and late autumn, you just drown in flowers
