Many people come to the Central Botanical Garden standing opposite the Central Zoo from nine o’clock in the morning when it opens.

It has favourable traffic conditions as it is near a metro station.

The first visitors to the garden are aged people.

“The atmosphere of the botanical garden is particularly refreshing as all kinds of plants grow there. I feel as if I were ten years younger when I do exercise with age-mates,” said old man Choe In Bae.

According to gardener Han Chol Myong, the aged people do rhythmic and other exercises to the tune of music here and there in the botanical garden with thick foliage in the vast area. This is a remarkable scene of the garden, he added.

People visit the garden furnished with resting places, cosy pavilions and big and small ponds in different places not only on holidays and Sundays but also in ordinary days to spend a good time while enjoying its beautiful scenery.

The botanical garden is a place of learning that gives a great store of knowledge and common knowledge of plants.

Lecturers kindly inform schoolchildren, who visit the garden for nature observation or plant collection, of biological characters of plants and their usefulness.

“I came to know a great deal including what plants grow in our country and difference between plants growing in greenhouses and those growing outside and between grass and trees through today’s nature observation,” said Kim Ye Song, pupil of Ryomyong Primary School in Taesong District, Pyongyang.

Schoolchildren acquire profound knowledge of plants there.

Young couples who have wedding photos taken in the scenic places of the garden and artists who draw beautiful scenes make the garden more conspicuous.

Kim Jun Il, third-year student of Pyongyang University of Fine Arts, said that his Korean painting depicting the summer scenery of the botanical garden won the first place at an artistry presentation, adding that he would draw glorious tints of its autumn foliage dexterously this time.

The Central Botanical Garden with rich flora of nature always welcomes visitors.
