The oldest Botanical Garden in Sweden, it was laid out as a royal garden in the mid-17th century and in 1787 donated to Uppsala University by Gustav III.
My first ever photo of Wollemia nobilis:
For the beginning of our vacation, we unfortunately had a tight schedule, with almost 3,000 km to drive in five days. This time we didn't visit Stockholm, for example, and in Uppsala there would have been so much more to see...
The historic quarter, to the west of the river Fyris, is really beautiful, with many interesting buildings and much greenery, lots of flowers and big, old trees.
