Geocache Description:

The place could now be the garden of the palace of the king of Finland, if things had gone as planned about 100 years ago.

In the autumn 1918 Finland had been independent almost one year. Friedrich Karl, the prince of Hessen from Germany was chosen to be as the king of Finland. The big house on a small hill in the garden was to be changed to the palace of the king. But as we all know, Germany lost the First World War and after that Friedrich Karl refused to receive the kingship. Opinions were changed also in Finland and Finland became a republic. So the house remained the Botanical Institute and Botanical Museum as it was built in 1903 and the garden remained as before.

The museum is not open to the public, but don't forget to visit the glasshouses.

The geocache can be reached only in daytime.
