I stopped by for a quick tour, there are much more beautiful parks in Kiev. This is more like a forest in the middle of city. I'd prefer seeing Marinsky Park instead.

The Hrishko Botanical garden at the Vydubychi Monastery is a magnitude more interesting than this one. This is in essence just another city park. A nice stroll nevertheless, but it needs some love from the local Botanical students/University. No signage and the fountains are in...More
