You have to pay a couple tenge for the entrance. I missed better navigation around the park. I did not find the exit to Al-Farabi street. Is he there or not? Escaped through some gate with a barking dog. The garden is definitely interesting.

We were ahead of the tourist season by a few weeks, however we stopped by the botanical garden anyway. We had to pay entrance free, but the place was obviously not ready for tourists. The place looked completely dead, I’m not sure why we even...More

Only the Japanese garden is worth a visit. The rest of the botanical garden is huge but needs some serious maintenance, seems like no one worked in it for the last 5 years.. Which is a pity!
