Reviews and Additional Information
This park is huge and I had a good walk around here that took me a few hours. There are lots of different gardens, woodland, and even a monastery. Unlike most of the parks in Kiev you have to pay to get in here. The entrance was 20 UAH (very cheap given the current exchange rate).
If you visit here I would recommend going to the Lavra as it is fairly nearby.
This is an amazing park with lots of flowers and plants from all over the world. There’s even a church and a forest. It’s a bit neglected in places but overall is a pleasant place to visit on a sunny day. It’s a fair walk from the Metro. The closest stop is Druzhby Narodiv.
