Linnaean Garden

« Previous | Page 19 | Next »

I visited the Linnean Garden (or Linnaeus' Garden, in Swedish Linnéträdgården) with Mari and Inka on the second day of my stay in Uppsala. It was rainy when we came there but happily it turned soon into sunshine. Linnean Garden is the old botanical garden of the Uppsala University (before it was moved to the castle gardens in 1787). It has been restored to its 18th century form.
