There are more observatories in the Astronomy Park. We walk around in the park and looking at them.

Uppsala old Observatory was one of the old observatories from the article "Sweden's old observatories" that I translated not long ago: Sweden's old observatories.

I read somewhere that all these observatories are empty today. But I also read that there is a Newton reflector in one of them.

All these buildings are placed in a beautiful park. We could read at one sign that the flowers are planted in star constellation patterns.
