  • Huge and very careful botanical garden, cheap entrance; at the same time, very quiet park and with parts of it dedicated to children.

  • Once upon a time, when I was little where and saw little botanical garden in Minsk I liked very much ... So years later I wanted to visit him again... and was disappointed. Perhaps, during the flowering period of anything there and interesting to walk, but in August the garden gave the impression of the most ordinary park and paid. 10 rubles per adult, in my opinion, is not reasonably high fee.
