Ask any Kyiv guide where is the best time for visiting Kyiv and you’ll get the answer that it’s the time of lilac blossom in Botanical Garden. The term "lilac" pushes purple buttons in your mind, but various lilac cultivars have flowers in various colors and hues. The collection of lilacs in the National Botanical Garden consists of 21 species (out of 28 existing in nature). There are more than 1000 lilac bushes. Here I should stop describing the tour and run with you and my gimbal to show you this maddening beauty near the Vydubytskyi monastery. Because the period when the lilac bushes are in blossom is very short. Join this uplifting walk to provoke feelings of love and happiness.

Despite some problems with the signal, it was a wonderful tour around the garden seeing so many types of lilacs, tree peonies and other flowers. Wish we could have experienced the scent too. Thank you so much Olga.
