A Day with LinnaeusWhile in Stockholm to attend a conference, I ventured to Uppsala to visit the garden of Sweden's famous naturalist Carl Linnaeus. Although diminutive, the garden is an important reminder of the value of nature and its role in inspiring the seminal work completed by Linnaeus in systematically classifying plants and animals.
Linnaeus was a botanist, naturalist, explorer, writer, and teacher, and his house and garden have been restored to reflect his tenure. The Swedish Linnaean Society provides tours of the house and garden in both Swedish and English, and there is a lovely gift shop and small cafe.
