  • More a beautiful, calm, aromatic park than a botanical garden. It's really well maintained and the scent of some flowers fulfill your heart.
  • A must see for everyone. Practically by the harbor, you can experience a wide variety of plants from all around the world. Many survive due to arctic climate, not despite it.
  • It is a precious and very interesting space for the species that it cultivates and whose genetic inheritance preserves. If I had to choose a single place in this city would be this botanical garden.
  • Just a blanket of white when I visited end of March
  • Very diverse plant collection in small place
