This city is especially charming during the spring flowering season, when local gardens, public parks, and all the green zones awaken for the new life of roses, cherry blossoms, and tulips. Along with abundant butterflies and birds, many flowering places at this time resemble paradise. Tulips are the most abundant, as locals hold a festival dedicated to the flower. The Canadian tulip festival continues for ten days in mid- to late May. However, the blooming season starts already in mid-April.
