Two national days of festivities are approaching, commemorating the tercentenary of the birth of Carl Linnaeus (known in his native Sweden as Carl von Linné). Thousands of guests from near and far are expected to visit Linnnaeus´s birthplace at Råshult, and Uppsala, where he lived and worked for fifty years. Scientists, Linnaeus devotees and flower children alike will be able to celebrate together with members of the Swedish royal family and the Japanese Emperor and Empress.
