We visited the oldest botanical garden in Sweden and many other countries founded in 1655 by Olaf Rudbeck the Elder. It is laid out in the French Style and restored following Linnaeus' and Carl HÃ¥rleman's design from 1745. Today approximately 1300 species are grown here. All known to have been cultivated by Linnaeus and arranged according to his own system. We received a guided tour of the museum which was Linnaeus' town home for around 30 years.
