Since last spring, the Tallinn Botanic Garden has become the Embassy of the Plant Kingdom. December here is dedicated to Norway. During the month you will be able to visit the exhibition, take part in a guided tour and celebrate the Day of Norway, as well as get acquainted with Norwegian plants.

This Saturday, December 10, at 12:00, botanist Urmas Laansoo will lead a tour of Norwegian plants in the Tallinn Botanic Garden. You can join the tour with a regular ticket. Also, in December plants of Norwegian origin in the botanic garden will be marked with interesting information labels prepared by Urmas Laansoo.

In December, at the Palm House, the Norwegian Embassy presents a photographic exhibition “Journey to Norway”, the motto of which is a popular Norwegian proverb “Ut på tur, aldri sur”, which means “There is never a bad mood on a hike”.

On Sunday, December 11 at 12:00 the Norwegian Embassy will screen the documentary “A Queen Without a Country” (with English subtitles). At 14:00, the embassy, in cooperation with Hurtigruten, will talk about Norway and travel opportunities in this country. Hurtigruten is a Norwegian travel company that offers cruises along the coast of Norway, as well as, for example, to Antarctica, Greenland, Svalbard, and the Galapagos Islands. In 2023, Hurtigruten will celebrate a worthy anniversary – 130 years of sailing along the Norwegian coast.

In honor of the anniversary of the Tallinn Botanic Garden, from May 2021, the botanic garden offers foreign embassies in Estonia the opportunity to present the biological and cultural diversity of their countries and thereby raise awareness of the importance of global nature conservation.
