Although Latvia’s oldest botanical garden began its existence in a different location in 1922, the Latvian government allocated the 10h of land at its current address in 1926. Since then the gardens have flourished and today you’ll find thousands of common and rare flowers, plants and trees here as well as a pond, a huge palm house and a butterfly house. The palm house also includes a specimen of wollemia nobilis, an ancient tree thought to be extinct for hundreds of millions of years until it was discovered in a remote location in Australia in 1994. The butterfly house is kept at a balmy temperature of 30°C and 90% humidity, so photography is challenging, but you’ll be able to see plenty of these beautiful creatures with the naked eye. Take tram No.1 from Kr. Barona to the Botāniskais dārzs stop.
