I remember once I was given a short excursion to the Botanical Garden in Moscow. And despite the fact that I'm not a particular plant lover, I liked it. Green maple, Bird cherry Maaka, Gledichia, Catalpa, Karelian birch, Cossack juniper. 10 years have passed, and I still remember these names. But the plants are also memorable. There was also an arboretum in Pereslavl-Zalessky, therefore, having visited Iron Museum and Steam Locomotive Museum, it was decided to go there. I didn't want to go to temples / monasteries ... In addition, there you could rent bicycles and ride a little.

Correctly it is called the dendrological garden. S.F. Kharitonov and was founded in 1952. At the moment it covers an area of 58 hectares. The entire garden is divided into zones corresponding to different countries. Most of the plants were brought from Europe and America, Siberia, China and Japan, the Caucasus.
Our mistake was that we did not take a guide, he must be ordered separately and in advance. Because without an excursion, you just walk in a regular, but paid park, and you don't understand anything. Trees and Trees. Moreover, I am personally interested in unusual plants, such as the Green-Horned Maple, which, by the way, we found quite by accident (it was very easy not to notice, it is not near the path, but behind other trees). Thus, we just rode our bicycles for an hour (made a circle around the arboretum), periodically stopping to read the signs. By the way, I highly recommend taking bicycles, without them you need to go around the territory for several hours. True, if you take a tour, then it is unlikely that it will be a bicycle.
Also, if you want great impressions, then it makes sense to go to the arboretum in spring, when everything is in bloom, or in autumn, when the foliage is colorful. In the summer, when we were, everything is green and merges into a single wall. In general, walking in the park is pleasant, like in any other, but paid entrance is suitable only for visiting tourists. And only to those who have any interest in plants. From two of us, 400 rubles came out in an hour, you must admit, not for everyone it will be worth it.
