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.

  • Enjoy the gardens and whimsical fountains. This is a spring and summer attraction since the gardens are then at their peak. 
  • Summer Palace, an ornate fountain and gardens beautiful and a bit of a hassle but now I'm going to move in the city where it is worth

  • This lovely garden with statues is right below the Mikhailovsky castle so it is very convenient to visit. We got some beautiful views while walking through this garden with our private guide. We think...  more »

  • 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.
