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.

  • The Botanical Garden has lots of flowers and a great landscape design. Is broad and pleasant. Has several specimens of plants. It also has a forest surrounded and a beautiful Lake with a beautiful wooden bridge. For it is possible to come to a small Botanical Museum. Visiting hours: from 6:00 to 8:00 pm (during summer).

  • 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.
  • It's definitely a beautiful and calm place, great for sports but only if you live nearby, don't worth the travel. Kids love, but if you are young/adult will probably be a boring place. Great for photos too.
  • Nice garden for a walk or sports practice, you probably won't stay still there for very long. It's also a nice place to bring kids.
  • Awesome Botanical Garden. Great view. Beautifull Place to Visit
  • One of the most beautiful park in Curitiba. The place has a good conservation. Green areas and places to seat Down and admire the view.

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.
