Inside the park there are special areas for specific kind of flowers, such as roses. Beautiful roses. White, pink, red, etc. You may sit near them, under the trees, on the benches and listen to the song of the birds. Or you may take a blanket with you, lay it on the ground, on the green and soft grass, and stay on it for reading, relaxing or even sleeping. During the summer there are lots of groups or families in the park spending their time “on the nature”. You’ll see here lots of kids or young people riding a bicycle, jogging or just sitting in the shade.
As for me, every season is great for visiting Yerevan’s Botanical Garden. In spring, especially in May, when the weather is great, sun doesn’t burn yet and is already not cold, garden is full of colorful flowers, which spread their smell all over. In summer you may come here to hide yourself from the heat, as trees everywhere are the best “umbrellas” and sources of oxygen. What about fall?!.. This is a small fairy tale in the city. In October, when the leafs start to change their color and fall down, the park becomes a colorful place, where in every corner you may wonder how the nature is amazing. All over trees and bushes change their color to yellow or red, and there are still some green trees seen. And between those colorful bunch of leafs you’ll still find some flowers blooming and making a special atmosphere. What to say about the park in winter? Considering the fact, that it’s really cold in Yerevan during winter time, even if there is not always snowy, I don’t think there are much people going there as on other seasons. And I can assume how beautiful it may be after a heavy snowfall, without human touches. Another kind of tale!
Actually it’s one of the most favorite places for photographers. You can always see people taking pictures of the nature or making photo-shoots of kids, women or couples. And it’s really a good place for photography. I also always take my camera with me and try to take couple of nice shots. Really inspiring!
