The Tavrichesky Sad (Gardens) are located at the end of Furshtatskaya St. a few blocks from Chernishevskaya metro. Also called the Gorodskoy detsky park, City Children's Park and Tauride Garden just to make things confusing.

It is named for Potemkin of Tauride, the famous Russian who conquered Crimea, once called Tauride. Potemkin was the favorite of Catherin II the Great.

It is composed of lakes and paths that wander through trees and grass and flowers.
There are several children playgrounds and cafes and many to make it a nice place to walk and sit.

The indoor Flowers Exhibiton Hall off Potemkin Street is next door and worth a look.

free to wander
