Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens, Tokyo
One of Tokyo’s oldest and most beautiful gardens is Koishikawa Korakuen. It was constructed in the early Edo Period during the rule of the Tokugawa shogunate. Koishikawa Korakuen, like other traditional Japanese gardens, tries to recreate famous settings in miniature by utilizing ponds, stones, trees, and artificial hills to mimic both Japanese and Chinese scenery.
In the concrete desert of central Tokyo, this garden is a verdant oasis of calm and quiet. The park is not totally secluded from the city; it is surrounded by tower blocks and the colossal Tokyo Dome. It is easy to forget about them and become completely immersed in the garden. It has so many trails and secret nooks that it’s easy to lose track of time (I spent over three hours there without realizing how long it had been).
Volksgarten, Vienna, Austria
The Volksgarten, or ‘People’s Garden’ in English, is a public park in Vienna, Austria. Ludwig Remy designed the garden, which is part of the Hofburg Palace, in 1821. Napoleon demolished the city walls in 1809, and the park was created on top of them.
The park is known for its magnificent rose gardens, which have over 3,000 rose plants representing over 400 distinct rose varieties. It’s the ideal spot for tired walkers. Sitting on one of the benches will rest tired legs while the eyes will appreciate the blossoming rose garden and you will be able to listen to the flowing fountains away from the city’s hustle and bustle. On top of this, you can enjoy this view for free.
