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).

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.

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
