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.

  • Is one of the points of visitation that deserves to be visited. The location is stunning for its beauty, for the amount of existing plants, besides Lake with many fish. It's great to do with kids.

  • 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.
  • These beautiful gardens are the pride and joy of Curitiba. While not Versailles or the gardens summer palace outside Vienna, they add a touch of elegance to this city's obsession with urban planning.
  • 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.
  • Small place. Has a beautiful garden, but that's about it. Has just one warm house with plants and not much diversity
