Tallinn Botanic Garden, Tallinn

(4.3/5 based on 90 reviews on the web)
Home to an array of native and exotic species, Tallinn Botanic Garden represents the most extensive of its kind in the country. Established originally in the Soviet years as a showcase for plant adaptation, the complex quickly grew into a collection spanning many greenhouses and arboretum sections. Visit the gardens, nestled in a lush riverside valley near the city, and wander the 123 hectares (300 acres) of indoor and outdoor space. Join a guided tour (they are offered in English) to get a solid overview of the facility as a whole and to glean in-depth knowledge about the resident plants, their life-cycles, and their role in the environment. Afterward, go for a stroll along the nearly 4 km (2.5 mi) of outdoor trails, traversing different habitats and ecological zones laid out by theme. For Tallinn Botanic Garden and beyond, use our Tallinn itinerary planner to get the most from your Tallinn vacation.

  • Of course, like any tourist attraction in the outdoors, it is better to visit in warmer months. The season can start in April, bald fields not everywhere yet free from snow, obsypajutsja raspuskajushhinisja krokusami, completely naked Forsythia bushes opsypany bright yellow flowers, lovely! Then, of course, will go to tulips and daffodils. At this time even festivals. Generally pleasant garden that often organize various outdoor activities. Area allows you to walk and run everywhere, for children-a huge plus! Want to keep track of advertising events.

  • 5 € only scha Palm House. I call it the dome. The glass sarcophagus within the tropics, subtropics and Cacti. In Moscow, RSC and Leningrad gardens much more charming and here, there's even a small pond with gold carp and gazebo! All in the dome. PARKING AND FREE AUDIO GUIDE. In winter the Cafe didn't work. But on the street there is an educational trail. Very nice walk even in the cold and wind
