A beautifully designed layout makes Tallinn's magnificent Botanical Garden a wonderful attraction and it shouldn't be missed on a sunny day out in the capital. Containing more than 8,000 plant species, the botanical gardens is a great place to visit, especially when sightseeing with a family. The flora comes from all around the world, displayed in arboretums, glasshouses, open fields and thematic gardens.

Specialised exhibits change every month, and thematic tours are offered all year round, the most popular being the summer night aroma tours, and the rose days. A nature trail traverses the different habitats.
