Summer Garden, St. Petersburg

(4.5/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • All good time of day! I would like to praise the city landmark. Restoration obviously benefited, Garden support clean, shorn lawns, manicured promenades, white swans, working fountains, issuing of souvenir coins (naturally for our wood 100!) beautiful sculptures on all that do not look eye all is well. Went through the turnstiles for free, but we walked on September 1 and it was a weekday) perhaps because the admission money. So if you go to visit the place, check beforehand on the order, otherwise very advise))).

  • Assume that the current type of summer garden as close as possible to the historical original. After the reconstruction has become attractive to walk through the gardens, take pictures, sit on a bench while admiring the Swans on the pond and just relax. And of course the beautiful sculpture returned to their historic places!

  • If the day with blue skies and sunshine, not you can be disappointed, because the splendor of its gardens, buildings and fountains will be of the best places that you remember having visited, true delight for the senses. Stroll quiet through the entire environment and discover all its secrets is worth, do not go in a hurry.

  • 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.
