The botanical garden near Universytet metro is cozy in any weather. Thanks to the landform it has survived from any constructions on its territory. However, the metro entrance didn’t and now the new Hilton Kyiv hotel that was built in front of it, makes it look like a small barn… But anyway…The garden is quite old, from 1839 and belongs to Taras Shevchenko University.
The best time is in a middle of April when magnolias begin to bloom. There are two orangeries with tropical plants where students study. It’s closed for visitors, but I’ve been there at the concert. There is an Ukho company that organizes concerts of experimental classical music in different interesting locations of Kyiv.
