  • I go to this place since I was a kid and everyday it gets more beautiful. It makes me feel really close to the nature; there are some places in the garden where you can sit and hear the birds; it's all green and a lot of pretty colorful flowers (I didn't post photos of them - you have to discover them by yourself); the only inconvenience is that most of the weekends in the summer are populated with brides and photo sessions, so if you want to spend some chill time in here, the best period is from Monday to Thursday, perhaps. Also it's a good place for running, for learning the children various types of plants and flowers; the garden has sits for relaxing, but no picnic is allowed in there. Great place to spend the time, even just for walking.
  • Very nice and peaceful place, we had a good rest there. There are lot of different plants, trees and flowers. Entrance ticket cost us a 7 lei per person, which is a good price for what you get. Highly recommend!
