It's a good place if you want to feel fresh air and walk along with your own thoughts and avoid crowds of tourists. The territory is big. Start your way from going to the top in the cabin. Almost no people in the upper area. Lots of interesting plants, trees, fountains - watch, walk and enjoy.

Take a ride on the cable road to the top and then go down. Don't forget to cross the road and walk in the "lower" Dendrarium - it's also beautiful

Green spot in Sochi, having many different trees and flowers. Very good place to wonder around or just sit on the top of the hill and looking down to the sea.

However, the chairlift is currently CLOSED with no known reopening date. Therefore, set aside an entire afternoon for a long walk up a steep hill. The views from near... More

Beautiful and very huge park. I recommend to use the funicular and start from visiting the top of the park and then walk into the down park. Very intersting museum of Hudjakov- the man who collected the trees from different parts of the world and founded this park
