Overview
More
One of the more striking things about this beautiful botanical garden is the fact that it is located right next to an industrial centre, complete with cooling towers, chimneys churning out everything nasty-looking, and nasty smells. That small problem aside, the garden is well kept and absolutely beautiful in the spring. While having a stroll, you'll come across impressive pine trees, a lily pond with waterfall and a herb garden. Bucharestians treat the gardens as a park, and on warm afternoons you may see more young lovers than plants. The huge glasshouses are open Tue, Thr, Sat, Sun, 09:00 - 13:00. Take bus 336 from Universitate to get there. Admission 10,000 lei (5,000 for children).

It is a nice place to relax if you live in Bucharest. As a tourist it is not remarkable except for the looming plant nearby and communist architecture. Is it interesting, yes. Is it nice to go there during the hot weather yes but is...More

Very nice park for a stroll. Clean. Still missing some attraction. Flowers are taken very well care off. Heard they do also parties here. Would like to see that

In case you want to spend some relaxing time with your family in a urban green area, without crowds and noises, then the botanical garden is a perfect option. There is a green house inside, a lake (not the cleanest) with happy ducks :), a...More

Beautiful gardens with scientists in charge and meticulously documented plants and flowers (in Latin). Many of the descriptions are in Romanian and English. I particularly liked grandma's garden where flowers, medicinal plants and vegetables are grown for domestic use. It gives you an idea of...More

A quiet area in the middle of the urban agglomeration that characterizes Bucharest. Entry may vary but does not exceed 10lei(2-3 euro) per person. You can walk around quietly all day and analyze all plant types.
