In 1704, according to the decree and the handwritten plan of the Russian Emperor Peter I, a garden, that was named the Summer Graden, was laid out in the place of the former Swedish mansion on the banks of the Neva in St. Petersburg.
It got this name because of the fact that there were planted almost only one-year flowers initially and trees had been planted there later. Though later the name gained a broader meaning and became understood as a garden for summer walks, unlike the closed winter gardens. The design and decoration of the Summer Garden had lasted for many years, and there was no Russian emperor who did not pay attention to the adornment of the city. The main ornament of the garden - its marble statues - was brought from various European cities.
Having lived 15 years in St. Petersburg, the author of the work reproduces his daily walks through the Summer Garden, its indescribable beauty in different seasons with tender love. Passing his stunning sense of color and palette, Nurillo makes his memories come alive, allowing you to enjoy walks in the alleys that only Russian emperors could have afforded previously.
