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).

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.

First time i visited this place was about 20 years ago. i must say over the years it just exploded (in the good way). Loads and loads of redecorating new areas and improvements have been added over the years. It's quiet, big, and tickets are...More

Sometimes you need a bit of downtime, even when your time is limited. These are not the best gardens you'll ever visit, in fact it's more like a park. But they're pretty and provide a wonderful escape from the city. It's only costs 5 RON,...More

This is a great place to take a walk and to get rid of day by day stress. The atmosphere is great and the flowers makes everything to be like in a dream. It's a clean place and really really quiet.

The place is just like a park except that the water is much dirtier. If you wanna see a true botanical garden in Romania I recommend you Cluj. At the end of April we could see just some field flowers and same tulips we can...More

However the parts of the garden may be a little bit neglected, the place is cheap and easily accessible. It is nice to have some walks in the green area.

A very beautiful place to visit, and incredibly cheap to get in. The museum didn't appear to be open on the day we visited, and we only saw part of the hothouses (we got ushered out by staff who didn't speak English, so no idea...More
