“Beautiful butterfly house”

Botanisches Garten des Universitaets
Ranked #77 of 313 things to do in Riga
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Beautiful butterfly house with a tropical climate, wonderful plants and butterflies. I think it wil appeal to both adults and children. During the winter you can see bigest Baltic azalia colection but in the spring amaizing rododendron fields.

It has been for some time now forgotten by the Latvian public, but I think it is a wonderful place to go to on a free day and it does not have to necessarily be the blooming of flowers. It has an amazing huge greenhouse with enormous tropical trees and there is a beautiful Butterfly House.

The Butterfly House is quite new and it is just interesting to see how it evolves over time. It is great both for kids and adults to go in the greenhouse and to be able to see butterflies and little birds fly freely.

The good thing I like about this botanical garden is the staff is very forthcoming. They will help you with answers if you have about plant or how to grow them. You can also buy plants from them.

Placed close to Old Town of Riga this place is especially recommended for visit in any time of alive vegetation in Latvia - from March until October with reasonable corrections each year. (Sometimes winter belongs until April and start in beginning of October) Garden has wonderful collection of rhododendrons and lot of another decorative plants, some of them unique. There are possibility to buy something for you garden, too.
