The Botanic Garden of the University of Turku is situated in Ruissalo, Turku. The entrance to the huge outdoor garden (23 hectares) is free but you have to pay 5 euros if you want to visit the indoor garden. It is absolutely worth it! There are over 5,000 species in the garden. There are very beautiful water lilies both in... More
