The gardens of Wij (see entry July 11, 2006) were elected Sweden’s most beautiful park this year. My congratulations!
The motivation says that “In the spirit of Linnaeus, the Gardens of Wij have in little time managed to create a genuine and in many ways unique Swedish park ideal showing and reflecting the beauty in the surrounding north Swedish landscape“.
This great place is constantly evolving and offering new interesting sights. This year, among other things, a Linneaus garden, showing useful and beatiful plants.
The award also means they are nominated for the European contest, together with England, Italy, Poland, France and Germany.
