Rhododendron park in Helsinki

There’s a hidden gem in Helsinki, that you just must see! A place called Alppiruusupuisto, a park in the middle of forest, full of blooming rhododendron and azalea.

The park was established in 1975, over 3000 rhododendron were planted for research purposes.

For couple of weeks in the beginning of June, thousands of flowers bloom and there’s amazing scent everywhere.

The park is open 24/7 and it’s free. Thanks to the night-less summer nights, you can go for a stroll in the middle of the night if you feel like it.

You can reach the park in half an hour from Helsinki railway station with train or by bus.
