Summer Garden, St. Petersburg
(4.5/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Stroll among large oaks, rare flowers, fountains, and marble statues at Summer Garden. One of the few sites preserved since the time of Peter the Great, the garden was designed by the tsar and opened in 1704. Admire statues by 17th- and 18th-century Italian sculptors, which represent mythological themes, gods, and heroes of antiquity. Take a close look at the 18th-century iron fence and the circle of iron chairs made by 12 different blacksmiths. The garden also features the Summer Palace of Peter the Great, a coffee house, and a teahouse.

  • A beautiful summer garden in the English style, with copies of Italian marbles, and beautiful roses in pots. At the weekend-in the summertime-live music.

  • If you're visiting the summer garden in St Petersburg, visit accidentally inside landscape complex "summer garden", your looks vulgarity and tastelessness monument opens in the territory of the HP-reconstructed as a child sandbox "Fountain Sultana". My thoughts are with you. If not left indifferent, write to the Director of the State Russian Museum (running Summer)-Gusev. I already wrote some replies, if we will, then, perhaps, will react ... I'm not talking about arrays.

  • Wow. This is super place to visit as well. It's green atmosphere, all those tall trees, lovely fountains the tunnel garden every corner fascinates me. Very nice n cool place for the summer. I call it a forest in the city. See for yourself it's also near St. MICHAELS CASTLE and the famous Church of the Spilt Blood. 😃😉 Lovely St Petersburg ❤❤❤
  • The dish is garbage, when I ordered an dish of Chinese broccoli and shrimp, they use all of them with the root of broccoli, when I complained to them, they are kind of angry and said all the restaurants use root. Actually no body like to eat root of broccoli, they are saving the cost of that dish. The reason I'm angry about it is their attitude about it, they are so rude to customers. Strongly recommend not to go there.
  • The oldest park in Saint Petersburg is certainly one of it's finest. It's like an outdoor art gallery. Enjoy the fine collection of garden statues -- among the oldest in all of Russia.
  • A gorgeous park commissioned by Peter the Great. Beautiful monuments and fountains throughout. Take your time and go outside of peak hours to avoid the onslaught of tourists and visitors.
  • Beautiful! Would come again. One of our favorite spots. Lots of places to take pictures and enjoy the outdoors.
