"Summer Gardens" Top 5 Page for this destination Downtown Sites Tip by Canadienne
Downtown Sites, Saint Petersburg: 35 reviews and 34 photos
Considering the draw of the museums and nearby palaces, the quiet appeal of the Summer Gardens would be easy to ignore. . .but they do make a wonderful spot for a relaxing walk and rest. You need a ticket to enter ~ I still have mine but there is no price listed, however it was very inexpensive.
The gardens are almost as old as the city itself ~ Peter the Great requested the design after visiting Versailles, so it's in a geometric French-style with crossing alleys and trimmed shrubs. . .and the paths are symmetrically dotted with statues of Greek and Roman mythological characters, virtues and historical figures.
