The Botania botanical garden and butterfly garden form an urban oasis of silence in the vicinity of central Joensuu, far from the roar of the motorways. The shores of Lake Pyhäselkä, the natural landscape around Linnunlahti bay and the arboretum fill the area with the sounds of silence. A guided tour begins in a green outdoor garden and natural soundscape, moving into exquisite indoor soundscapes that stimulate all five senses. In the tropical warmth of the botanical garden, visitors learn about the acoustic phenomena of tropical forests, experiencing them for themselves through a 5 speaker system. There is also time for a tropical butterfly retreat, accompanied by the gentle murmur of a running stream.
