The Jardim Botânico de Curitiba, in Portuguese, or the Botanical Garden of Curitiba, in English, also known as the "Jardim Botânico Fanchette Rischbieter", is a park located in the city of Curitiba - the capital of the state of Paraná, and the biggest city in southern Brazil. It is the major tourist attraction and landmark of the city, and it houses part of the campus of the Federal University of Paraná. The international identification code is CURIT.Opened in 1991, Curitiba's trademark botanical garden was created in the style of French gardens. Once by the portal of entry, one may see extensive gardens in the French style amidst fountains, waterfalls and lakes, and the main greenhouse of 458 square meters, which shelters in its interior, specimens of plants characteristic of tropical regions. It rolls out its carpet of flowers to the visitors right at the entrance. The park occupies 240.000 m² in area. The principal greenhouse, in an art nouveau style with a modern metallic structure, resembles the mid-19th century Crystal Palace in London. The Botanic Museum, which provides a national reference collection of native flora, attracts researchers from all over the world. It includes many botanic species from the moist Atlantic Forests of eastern Brazil.

    It's not very big, but it's interesting. My daughter liked to smell some plants that she hadn't met.

    Located within the Botanical Garden (one of the main tourist spot of Curitiba), being a place where you will feel the texture and the aroma of different plants. Has banks to sit and enjoy the site. The garden is not great is more cool. The Botanical Garden has a free parking for 100 cars. Has parking next paid. There's her or nchonete, free public toilets, running and walking. There is access through public transport nearby, taxi stand in front and the bus stop Line tourism, where you can disembark and return with the same ticket. There is a velodrome, but within the Park it is prohibited to bicycles, skateboards, skates and the like. You can make picnic. It has an area where there is a small museum and exhibition and sale of orchids. On Saturday mornings there's free Yoga class (to 9 or 10:00 hours)

    Is one of the beautiful parks of Curitiba, being the most central of them. Good for hiking. You can't take animals, either bikes or skateboards. Has no spaces.

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.
