The Linnean Gardens of Uppsala have been combining botany and horticulture for more than 350 years. These days, they consist of the Botanical Garden, the Linnaeus Garden with the Linnaeus Museum, and Linnaeus’ Hammarby with an authentic 18th century milieu. Carl Linnaeus is mainly known as the father of modern taxonomy, due to his creation of a system for naming organisms. He lived and worked in Uppsala for more than 50 years, and his birthday is celebrated annually at the Linnaean Garden Party. On 19 May, visitors can head for the Linnaeus Garden to time travel back to the 18th century, hear the rustle of silk skirts, see silver shoe buckles glisten, and sample artisan foods.
