Tartu University Botanical Garden, Tartu

Garden · Park
Stroll through and soak up the beauties of nature at Tartu University Botanical Garden. The landscaped grounds and greenhouses were designed to recreate the natural habitats of various plants, so you can see species native to the frosty Siberian taiga not far from those you'd encounter in the tropical jungles of South America. Take a walk down the series of pathways surrounded by greenery, pause to rest on a bench, or admire the sculptures that dot the grounds. Kids can have fun at the playground and feed fish in the pond. Admission is only required for the greenhouses; visiting the outdoor areas of the garden is free.

  • The park has all the issues you would associate with city living: Lots of not recently showered smelly people around. This place needs to kick out those shady people from this park.  more »
  • Beautiful, cozy and tidy garden which you can visit for free :) Really recommended, at least for a short walk!  more »
  • One of the best botanical gardens I have visited. Just stunning. A 5 star class garden. Well maintained and so diverse and beautiful. An example for all the botanical gardens in the world!
  • A fantastic place to explore, discover, and relax. Entry is free for the garden itself, and there are entrances on either side. Great for walks and to bring younger kids. There are lots of small adventurous paths to explore as well.
