Butterflies in the Butterfly House

The National Botanic Garden of Latvia is one of the most popular places of recreation in Riga – it is possible to explore the compact but very information-intensive area at a slow pace, to get acquainted with plants from all over the world, as well as to simply enjoy the nature in the center of urban life. It is also possible to find here the only Tropical Butterfly House in the Baltic States, with butterflies from South America, Asia and Africa tropical jungle.
Everyone has an opportunity to experience tropical exoticism at the Tropical Butterfly House in the Botanical Garden: to feel the flutter of a butterfly’s wings, herbal scent and jungle climate. The wingspan of the largest butterflies is comparable with two large palms.

It is interesting that not only butterflies are in different colors and sizes, but their caterpillars also are diverse – some even resemble jewels. Through the incubator window it is also possible to watch the magical butterfly hatching process.

The Botanical Garden is open for visitors all year. It is possible to get to the Botanical Garden with trolley No. 9 and 25, as well as tram No. 4 (Dzirciema stop).
A ticket to the Butterfly House costs from 3.00-4.50 euros and must be purchased in addition to the entrance ticket.
Where: The Botanical Garden of the University of Latvia, Kandavas iela 2
