Why locals love it?

If you want to stop and smell the roses then that's the place to go to. Tartu Botanical Gardens were founded already in 1803 and in 1806 the moved to the current location. Between the plants you'll find interesting sculptures from Tartu Art Museum's collections. Try finding the "napping bear" or the "drowner".

Why you should visit it

Tartu Botanical Garden is not just a place to enjoy rich flora, but also the venue for many concerts and other events. The best thing about the Botanical Gardens is that walking in the gorgeous outdoor area is totally free of charge so you can even have a picnic there.

The entrance to the green house collections costs 3€ for adults, 2€ for kids/students and 6€ for a family.

An oasis of calm (in an otherwise calm city, but still) for a chill walk and pretty views.
