Considering the countries of the Baltic region, it should be noted that historical ties between them stretch from the Viking era and the Swedish Baltic hegemony of the 17th century to our time. The architecture of synthesizing classicism in general and the architecture of historical objects of botanical gardening in the Scandinavian countries remained beyond the attention of Russian architectural historians and experts, which makes the topic of the study relevant. The object of the study is the building of interior botanical gardening with signs of classical influence. The subject of this study is the nature and patterns of the influence of classical trends on the architectural and urban planning characteristics of buildings of interior botanical gardening in the studied cities of Norway and Sweden of the 18-19th centuries. Chronological boundaries: the period under consideration covers the period from the 1840s to the end of the 19th century. Territorial boundaries of the study: the largest cities in Sweden (Stockholm, Uppsala, Lund) and Norway (Oslo). The study of the regional features of the architecture of Scandinavian classicism on the example of historical objects of botanical gardening allows getting a more complete picture of the spheres of influence in the architecture of the Baltic countries.
