This is one of the best Botanical Gardens I have ever seen; it has a great range of species beautifully arranged. I loved it and will go to see it again as soon as I can.

We photographed many new to us flowers. The meandering walkways held labeled treasures at every turn. Beautifully laid out. Indoor glass house was a nice retreat from the rain. Highly recommend. Bathroom inside.

This botanical garden is a lovely place to wander around. Plants are labelled but the gardens make a lovely display

Even with the very dry summer in Estonia this year the garden is well worth a visit. See plants and flowers native to the region.
