The Winter Garden

One of my favourite places in Helsinki has always been the Winter Garden. Founded in 1893 you can almost feel like going back in time when you step into this little glass palace greenhouse. This is a haven of green lush when you visit here during the winter months but it’s as nice in the summertime.

The Winter Garden consists of three wings of greenhouses. There’s a wing for the cacti and succulent plants with walls of orchid, a room for palm and pine trees with water ponds and the third room is kinda seasonal room with lots of seating areas.

There’s also a really nice outside garden just in front of the greenhouses but there’s so much in there that I will make a second post about that. So stay tuned! But now some tropical green lushness!

I always love a little sneak peek to the backrooms. You get the feeling of “behind-the-scenes” of different places.Β

    • WOW! That’s what its name! I was wondering what it was (definitely not something Scandinavian) πŸ˜€ So beautiful plant and I spent a while just looking at that one. Thanks for commenting and letting me know the name of the beauty!
