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.

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

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

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
