The botanical garden is unlike any other place in Dushanbe. It is perfect for long walks, with lots of greenery. Not crowded on week days. Minimal refreshment stands. Clean.

The botanical garden is world class. Tons of flowers and different species of trees and bushes. I wish there were a few more signs identifying the items.
