St.Petersburg

Tavrichesky Garden

  Potyomkinskaya ul. 2 ,   City Centre-2          (+7) 812 605 00 81     14 May 2019
This is the park for ordinary people to come and take a short stroll, while fitness freaks go jogging. Once it belonged to Grigory Potemkin, the favourite lover of Catherine the Great. Red Mountain, the raised terrace and cafe, is marvellous for sun lovers, and the kebabs are great. The park also contains a bright spot: The Tavricheskiy Palace (closed to the public) held the first State Duma (parliament) meeting in 1906, as did the Petrograd Soviet following the February revolution in 1917. Lenin's statue has been removed and replaced by Russian poet Sergei Yesenin.
