We had a great walk with our kids in a nice sunny day. In the outside garden there can be found a great selection of Nordic plants and flowers and some nice layouts of the current season. A few narrow paths with stairs were exiting for the kids. At this time we enjoyed only for the outside garden because of... More

Been a few times now, has a great range of plants/flowers inside in varying conditions created for the range of fauna they have. I actually managed to notice one plant they didnt have and donated some cuttings for them to use. It can get seriously warm inside in the summer months, so i like to browse outside in the summer...

The Botanical Garden on Ruissalo Island offers a beautiful cross-section of nature inside and outside the greenhouses. Ruissalo has one of the mildest climates on continental Finland and the Garden is a foothold of milder climate vegetation in Finland. In the darkest, coldest winter the greenhouses are a wonderful contrast. In spring, summer and fall the whole Ruissalo Island is... More

Well, this time the garden could not be as beautiful as in summer time, so we concentrated in the greenhouses. There are plenty of tropical, mountain etc. plants, which also did wait for the winter rest. The rooms are not huge, and I really wait for visiting the garden in the summer time, because it seemed so diversified, allthough without... More

Turku Botanical Garden is situated on the island of Ruissalo, maybe the most famous protected area in Finland, just about ten kilometers from the City. In wintertime there is three botanical houses with many tropical plants. In the summertime there is a wide outdoor area too with very wide selection of plants and trees etc. They say that the selections... More
