An excellent botanical garden at the university. Unfortunately, we could not enjoy it fully, because the wind blew, but in good weather, I think it's just great there.

Very interesting to see different exotic plants from all over the world. I thougt maybe little boys are not that excited about flowers and all but it was also very educational to show where coffee comes from and there was "a chocolate tree" also, a cocoa tree :) Cactuses seemed to be very interesting also. Another fab thing was those... More

This is a lovely place to visit when it's -20C degrees outside; you feel like you've travelled abroad :) Interesting also for little kids!

A nice and colorful botanical park in the beautiful Ruissalo worth a visit! :) You can easily get there by bus (line number 8). You can visit the outer garden free of charge but if you wish to visit also the inner garden with more exotical flowers there was a small fee for that. There is a small café also.
