Helsinki University Botanic Garden is centrally located in Helsinki. They have both outdoor gardens with Finnish plants and greenhouses with collections of more exotic plants. The building in the picture, Palm House, is from 1887. This is one of my "must visit at least once a year" places. Please don't mix this one with the much smaller Helsinki City Botanical Garden located near Olympic Stadion. (Yes, they do have a beautiful collection there, too).

Address: Kaisaniemi, Unioninkatu 44
Directions: About 200 metr from the railway station towards Kaisaniemi, two entrances, the other at Kaisaniemenranta.
