Great botanical garden. Best collection of cacti I have ever seen. Lovely roses and irises. Also did a great wine tasting with vintner herself. She was so knowledgeable. The Black Sea location took our breath away. Well worth the trip!

This garden, and the sea, and the sun. Oh my God, this place is paradise. I visited it in May. Maybe it's less nice during the tourist season, but I fell in love with it. It's definitely worth going.

Not all around, just a part, mainly the upper part. For the bottom part, near the sea, you have to take the stairs.

It is about 15 km far (about 20 minutes by car) from your hotel. You can look at google.maps to see the routes. In summer, it is opened daily from 8:00 till 20:00.
