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.

  • It is impossible to visit Curitiba and not go to the botanical gardens. Obligatory stop! Beautiful gardens to see and go on a sunny day.

  • I went to the botanical gardens on my first day in Curitibia. It was a grand success. As a European, I was awestruck by how different the flora and fauna are in Brazil. In the gardens there are turtles and a large amount of birds that are different than what I was used to. The building itself is beautiful and it houses a large variety of plants. A must-see for every tourist in Curitiba! It's also close to the UFPR and easy to combine with a visit to the university.
  • In my eyes the best attaction of the city. Nice big garden and very well designed and maintained greenhouse.
  • Amazing. ..I have a lot of memory in there...I used to live across the street from botanical garden. .my daughter's used to play around with our dog...unforgettable. ..
  • Beautiful place to visit with friends and family ! Good for pictures ! Better to visit during spring or summer
  • Awesome place, beautiful views. Definitely worth to spend some time in there. The landmark itself is not the coolest part of the place, there's a lot to see (or not, they also have a 200 meters path with guides and labels for blind people to feel and touch different plants)
