Summer Garden, St. Petersburg

#5 of 115 in Parks in St. Petersburg
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.

  • Summer garden coeval of St. Petersburg. Founded on the orders of Peter the great, in the old part of the city. Combines the landscape park with statues and fountains. A few years ago was restored. A good place for leisurely walks.

  • Always charming summer garden for strolling, but few people know that in its territory there is a coffee house where you can warm up and grab a bite to eat, a weekend with 16 to 18 more and enjoy live performances by jazz artists. Tasty Mead, cute staff, but there is a big minus-take cash only .... and, unfortunately, may all be closed "to dry"

  • Most beautiful historic garden. Liked the atmosphere very much on a summer evening before sunset. It has guards at entrances and ice cream and snacks can be purchased on park lanes, as well as other dishes at a restaurant. Museum of the history of the Summer Garden is located in the garden.
  • Park in centre of Petersburg. Fountains, sculptures and ponds with birds in is a plce to relax and spend some time with loves ones. This ia not just a regular park, but is us also work of art.
  • Best to visit in summer. Wonderful place to have nice calm time.
  • English version below. Прекрасный недавно восстановленный сад. Там уютно, тихо, красивые фонтаны, аккуратные газоны и тропинки. Везде чувствуется атмосфера прошлых веков и людей, гуляющих в саду... Потрясающе! Если хочется на час отойти от шума большого города - вы нашли то самое место! The garden was reconstructed few years ago and it has become a brilliant, cozy, calm and quite place to relax from the noisy loud city. The avenues, bushes and greens, fountains and summer houses - they all let you feel better and better. Don’t about monuments and atmosphere of 18th century that covers you on every step. Enjoy the silence (c)
  • If I lived in Russia I'd be here everyday. Saint Petersburg is the most beautiful city in the world! Inspiration and art is all around you.
