Absolutely beautiful Italian styled gardens with numerous fountains and statues enhancing the magnificent setting. The gardens are on a slope and the easy climb gives an outstanding view of the various species of trees. There is a beautiful bamboo area and I almost expected to see pandas advancing towards me.

I spent almost an entire day here taking in the beautiful nature and fresh air. The paths are a bit old and the fountains are a bit shabby, but the park itself is still nice to visit for all of the great views and sense of calm it offers. There are also several animals - ostriches, peacocks, butterflies.

It's a good place if you want to feel fresh air and walk along with your own thoughts and avoid crowds of tourists. The territory is big. Start your way from going to the top in the cabin. Almost no people in the upper area. Lots of interesting plants, trees, fountains - watch, walk and enjoy.

Its one of the sightseeing to do as your tourist guide would say . choose a not so hot day and take the funicular to the top of the hill and stroll along the garden in a relaxing walk

Take a ride on the cable road to the top and then go down. Don't forget to cross the road and walk in the "lower" Dendrarium - it's also beautiful

Very pretty alleys with local trees and flowers and a viewpoint from the top. Upper Dendrarium considered to be more ibteresting then Lower.

Green spot in Sochi, having many different trees and flowers. Very good place to wonder around or just sit on the top of the hill and looking down to the sea.

I first went to the Dendrarium last year (2015) and took the chairlift to the top, so naturally this year I was expecting to be able to do the same thing. However, the chairlift is currently CLOSED with no known reopening date. Therefore, set aside an entire afternoon for a long walk up a steep hill. The views from near... More
