To the park for a picnic: a selection of ancient gardens of St. Petersburg for summer pastime

Summer is a time for picnics and walks in the fresh air. St. Petersburg is famous for its beautiful parks and gardens, which are ideal for relaxing on a warm summer day.

In which garden is the most ideal lawn? Where are the most fountains and ancient statues? We have prepared for you a selection of interesting gardens of St. Petersburg, where you can have a picnic or just enjoy a green oasis in the city center.

Park of the 300th Anniversary of St. Petersburg

Despite the fact that the park is far from the Express Sadovaya Hotel, be sure to set aside a day to visit it and spend time by the shore of the Gulf of Finland. You can get to the location by metro.

The youngest park was built in honor of the anniversary of the city. In the open area there is an equipped beach, a green area with trees and shrubs, playgrounds for children.

Yusupov Garden

The amazing beauty of the park is located on Sadovaya Street, within walking distance from the hotel.

The final appearance of the Yusupov Garden was acquired only in the 19th century. Nowadays, the park is especially beautiful in summer, when you can walk among the green trees or sit on a bench by the pond. On the territory of the garden there is a beautiful manor house, once belonging to a princely family.

Shuvalov Park

There is one of the mysterious parks in the Vyborg Highway area. Little Switzerland is located on the green territory, in the center of which the Vorontsova-Dashkova estate was built. The park got its name because of its hilly terrain.

However, neither the gentrified territory nor the numerous lakes and hills are attractive to tourists and residents of the city. According to rumors, the park holds many secrets, and the first one is connected with the Shuvalov estate, in the building of which the Research Institute is now located, protected by a fence.

Tavrichesky Garden

The Tauride Garden is considered an example of the park architecture of St. Petersburg. The construction of the green zone began in the 18th century, when the territory around the Tauride Palace was improved. The author of the project was the garden master William Gould.

Unfortunately, the garden has undergone several restorations, was renamed, but was able to regain its original appearance and name.

The Field of Mars

The Field of Mars is a huge green area in the middle of palaces and pre–revolutionary buildings. It is considered a favorite place of St. Petersburg residents because of the perfect green lawn where you can spread out a blanket and have a picnic.

Most of the pre-revolutionary parks of St. Petersburg are located in the central districts of the city, so you can get from the Express Sadovaya Hotel to any of them on foot or by public transport. Rather, book a room on the official website of the hotel to spend an unforgettable summer in St. Petersburg.
