Sweden: Linnaean Garden

On Wednesday I got three postcards: one from Sweden and two from Thailand.

The card from Sweden shows the Linnaean Garden in Uppsala. The Linnaean Garden is the oldest botanical garden in Sweden. Carl Linnaeus became responsible for the garden in 1741 and had it rearranged according to his taxonomy. He documented the arrangement in his work Hortus Upsaliensis. In the 19th century the garden decayed, but in 1917 it was restored. Today it belongs to the University of Uppsala. It seeks for the inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
