  • A beautiful place in the center of Minsk. There is always something to see at any time of the year. Of course, it is especially beautiful in spring and summer. Here you can wander in silence, being in the center of the capital. I highly advise you to visit

  • Visited the botanical garden on October 23, 2019. Visitors are almost non-existent and unsurprising, as the price of a walk is 8 rubles. Even at a discount for children and pensioners 4 rubles in the fall for a walk is very expensive. In the summer, of course, this price is justified, but not in the fall!!! By the way, in Palanga, a visit to the botanical garden is free.
