Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, Curitiba

4.8
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.

  • The site is part of the roadmap of tourists in Curitiba and worth the trip, especially if you like plants and architecture. The garden design is impeccable, wonderful plants and very well cared for and the sunset is a must!

  • A nice place to take a walk at. Also, a great chance to capture photos and videos. It would be better if there were a good cafes and restaurants
  • It is a nice place to walk around and enjoy a quiet afternoon or have a romantic picnic. There is a beautiful pond with fish and ducks. The garden is quite small but is great for taking pictures. The entire park is huge and there are quite a few runners and a nice amount of families walking around even during weekdays.
  • Excellent park. The Botanical Garden of Curitiba 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.
  • What a wonderful place! if you ever get to Curitiba this is a must visit place. The gardens are beautiful and there's a lake where people get together to enjoy their family weekends. There's a free parking area on the entrance but usually it's crowded, anyway it's worth to wait for a parking spot.
  • This Botanical Garden is beautiful. It's one of the most beautiful among the Brazilian ones. It is very large, with a lot of places to visit on it, lots of plants for you to see on the greenhouse, and also all around it. There is also a lake behind. Totally a must-go if you're around!
