This is a lovely garden to walk around and spend some time in a tranquil place. The garden is free and worth going to

I think we must have taken a path that bypassed some of the more interesting features in this garden, as although it was a pleasant, leafy park, we did not come across many fountains, statues and points of interest.

A peaceful place in the center of the city. If you want to relax and plunge into history, you defenitely have to visit the Summer Garden. Trees, fountains, old statues and river. Two cafes. You can spend here from 15 min to all day.

The Summer Garden (Letny Sad) has been restored to its original vision quite recently. It bedazzles you with a delicate combination of nature and sculpture in visually arresting design. The Summer Garden is relatively small in size and it is worth exploring its lanes and...More

Everything one could want in an urban garden park. Luxembourg garden in Paris came to mind for the peacefulness, but the statuary and fountains made the pleasure even greater. Every side is charming - Neva, a canal, the castle, and the park leading over to...More
