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.

  • It was great to get here on a hot day, after all the freshness of the fountains and greenery enjoy this site fully only in warm weather. Overall I was pleasantly surprised, I've enjoyed it, will definitely be back here again.

  • Quiet, calm, very well maintained grounds. In order to simply stroll and a bit of photographing. Especially to do nothing, neither adults nor children.

  • The summer garden is a place where you can spend an hour or so of another after a tour of the Hermitage. You and rest and enjoy sculptures.

  • 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.
