mihaylovsky garden

The garden is quite large: it covers ten hectares. The territory of the garden is limited by [Mikhailovsky Palace] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/mihajlovskij-dvorec/), [Ethnographic Museum] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/ethnomuseum/) and [Benois Wing] ( https://kudago.com/spb/place/korpus-benua/).

Mikhailovsky Garden appeared at the same time as the [Summer Garden] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/letniy-sad/), during the founding of St. Petersburg. Mikhailovsky Garden was repeatedly rebuilt for themselves by Russian rulers. The first major restructuring took place under Anna Ioannovna. Then Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli was engaged in the arrangement of the “Empress of the Garden”. He laid out flower beds, laid alleys, installed marble statues. Around one of the trees, the architect placed a rotating bench, and in its crown there is a gazebo with a spiral staircase.

Rastrelli also built a Summer Palace for the Empress, which was demolished half a century later at the behest of Paul I. Today, [Mikhailovsky Castle] stands on the site of the Empress's Palace ( https://kudago.com/spb/place/mihajlovskij-zamok/), which is also called Engineering. The landscape of the garden has also changed: canals were dug in front of the castle (they have not survived), making the building impregnable, and a parade ground for parades was placed in front of the main facade — for the amusement of Paul I. monument to Peter I] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/pamyatnik-petru-pervomu-u-inzhenernogo-zamka/) by Rastrelli.

Since the 19th century, reconstruction work has been carried out in the park several times, and busts of Ivanov and Bryullov have been installed. To date, work is underway on the territory of the Mikhailovsky Garden to restore its original appearance. Flowering shrubs and trees have been planted, and a once filled pond has been dug again.

Today, the garden attracts Petersburgers with its picturesque landscape and calm, quiet atmosphere. The garden is also famous for its stunningly beautiful Art Nouveau lattice, perhaps the most beautiful in the city on the Neva. The authorship is attributed to the architect Alfred Parland, who created [the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood] (https://kudago.com/spb/place/spas-na-krovi/). The grid consists of 36 columns decorated with white stone at the top and bottom. Some pillars are decorated with tiled tiles depicting outlandish animals and plants. The base of the grille is a forged fence, which is compared to lace because of its exquisite ornament.
