Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • I have seen nothing special. Park is a pretty. But this is not the first point in a tourist guide list.
  • A wonderful place to take a (free!) stroll. Beautiful fountains and statues galore!
  • A wonderful historic French-style park. Closed on Tuesdays.
  • Very beautiful park. You must see it:)
  • It might be the best park in the city. Don't miss it, specially in autumn.
