The Botannical Garden

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. The people of Bucharest 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).
