Overview

The City Winter Garden's greenhouses and the surrounding park constitute one of the city's bestknown sights. The winter garden is known especially for its exotic palm trees and cacti, as well as its rockeries. The famous greenhouses housing the palm trees were donated by J. J. Lindfors, and this is commemorated with a bust sculpted by Walter Runeberg. The winter garden does not have greenhouses as elegant or beautiful as the University Botanical Gardens boast, but the huge variety of plants contained within, and the lovely terraces in front of the building more than make up for that. The appearance of the greenhouse is also enhanced by the 1868 sculpture of Kullervo Puhuu Miekalleen (Kullervo Addresses his Sword), which stands in front of the building.
