This is not what i would call a botanic garden but a park. It was a reasonable place for a stroll but i wouldn't go out of my way to make a special visit. There is a small wooden church built about 5 years ago which was nice enough. There is also a spring that the locals believe is holy... More

This park was kind of cool. It's a nice one for walking. I thought it was worth going to see at least once.

This free park is a large recreational park rather than a botanical garden ( a place where plants and trees are normally labelled so that visitors can recognise them). Coming from London with its large but very plain parks, this place I found very interesting. There are walking trails, a spring and pool area where many people were cooling off... More

We decided to visit this park (metro Botanicheskiy Sad/ Botanical Garden) based on other reviews. To our surprise we didn't find this place as traditional Botanical Garden. Most locals (unless they live in this area) does not know about existence of Botanical Garden in Karkov and does not consider this park as a Botanical Garden. I also don't understand why... More

Well worth the visit to see all plants. The ticket price was so cheap and the show was so great. A must see if you are ever in Kharkiv.

A real different experience. We saw locals ''doing their own thing'' This park has undergone major renovation and is a very interesting place to see. There is a natural cold water spring , where people swim everyday of the year. The Wooden Church is well worth a walk up the hill to . Remember to cover your head with a... More

Nature, the source. Everything is very well-groomed. In good weather there are a lot of people, but you can retire in trails. Bring bottel to take some water with you
