Time to jump back to the memories of the great Sunday I had.
Odessa Botanical garden was open to the public all weekend which is a rare thing. You may come inside only with a group of 20 tourists the other day and there is no single ticket available, so strange. And the entrance was even free for Odessa sketchers on the weekend.
I remember being in the botanical garden long time ago while I was at the elementary school with a class and had great memories about this place.
Should I say how dissapointed I was on Sunday? Part of the botanical garden was occupied with new living building?. The territory of the garden itself is poor and lacks new plants, all the buildings are very old inside. That was worse than an average public park in Europe?
The festival itself was also appropriate for below average Odessa visitor – very loud music concert with bad acoustics and kids singing concert (sadly not all kids were signing well), barbecues for visitors were prepared right inside the botanical garden and I even saw the spot of old fireplace in the middle of the botanical garden?
Of course a person who values beauty would fall in love with an old building with tropical plants in botanical garden. Time made it so beautiful. Besides there was a lovely exhibition of linocuts by Alexandra Valchyuk inside. I can not imagine any other more suitable place for mixing the collection of tropical artworks rather than that old glass building??✨
How easy it is to notice the beauty inside the mess. Check the photos to have a feeling of the amazing exhibition✨
