Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, Curitiba

4.7
As you pass through the entryway gates at Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, you'll see the unmistakable Art Nouveau greenhouse that resembles the 19th-century Crystal Palace in London. Fountains, ponds, and waterfalls intersperse the gardens planted in French style. Tropical plants, many of which are rare, reside in the greenhouse alongside palms and native plants. The Botanic Museum provides a collection of native flora and botanical species from the Atlantic forests, which attracts researchers from all around the world.

Strolling along the paths brings you past native forest trees, gardens with native flowers, and 114 sculptural works, like "A Mãe" (The Mother). The Museum of Franz Krajcberg behind the greenhouse features the artist's collection and other artistic works including sculptures, art, and reliefs, as well as publications, photographs, educational materials, and videos. Walking across the wooden bridge towards the other side of the park brings you to the large herbarium in the Botanical Museum housed in a timber building. Surrounding the building is a lake, a library, an auditorium, a theater, an exposition area, tennis courts, and a cycling track, to name a few of the attractions. Children especially love to peer into the pond out front to identify carp, herons, teal, and turtles.

  • Visit the Botanical Garden in Curitiba is spectacular, beautiful and beautiful. Spend an afternoon alongside various kinds of flowers, trees and very well maintained gardens worth every minute. Highly recommended.

  • A lovely place for a walk or a hike. A little barren for a park. But on a sunny day.

  • Postcard of the city, with the metal frame greenhouse, is an icon of Curitiba ... always crowded! The best thing you can do is walk, sit on the lawn, hear the birds singing, walking in the garden of sensations and enjoy the green.

  • Beautiful rather small park with the well known greenhouse in glass. Tourist shop. Sports oval with tennis courts and tracks for local cycling and running. All seen in 20 minutes. Parking sometimes takes longer. Recommend a visit during weekdays a to buy a gift in the tourist shop for a fair price.
  • It a well maintained place. Beautiful landscape and a very interesting greenhouse. There is also a jogging track. You can spend the whole morning just relaxing!
  • Excellent park. The Botanical Garden is quiet and slows down a typical working day. It's extensive so you can walk a while and spend an hour or so from side to side and on inner areas. It is finely and very well maintained by keeping all areas clean with short grass and superb tidy trails. It has a great garden and landscape design. The admission is free.
  • Beautiful views. Some areas need a bit of love.
  • Beautiful place. But don't forget to visit Tanguá park It is very beautiful too.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
