The Botanical Garden from Bucharest is a place worth visiting when you want to spend a few hours away from the atmosphere of the tiring city or when you are craving for a walk on green scented alleys. In exchange of a very small fee, you can enjoy a real oasis of peace and delight.
In spring, the flowers are astonishing visitors with their colours and smells, the contrasts are daring and the air is warmer and warmer. Definitely you should not miss the pleasure of a long walk in an old but still vivid garden.
Another important part of the botanical complex is the green house, the most imposing building in the yard. Here are both exotic and domestic plants, carefully look after by the employees. Their scientific names, their popular names and also their original area can be seen on small plates near them.
And finally, the garden has lots of sectors dedicated to ornamental plants, geographical groups, law protected plants and trees, rare flowers, useful plants, an Italian garden and many other beautiful sectors that are worth seeing.
Favorite thing: 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
