Tauride Garden (Russian: Tavrichesky Sad)

Another park in the Central city district was founded near the Tauride Palace at the end of the 18th century by the English gardener William Gould. A small cozy park area with a pond, gazebos, benches and children’s playgrounds serves as a convenient place for recreation of the city residents.

In summer, people have picnics, play musical instruments, sunbathe on the grass, do yoga and feed the birds. In winter, they play hockey on a frozen pond, make snowmen. The Tauride Garden has a cafe, as well as an equipped sports ground for playing soccer and basketball.

Greenhouse

To the west of the palace in the 19th century, fruit trees were planted and an extensive garden was laid out. Melons, pears, peaches, apricots, plums, cherries and watermelons were grown in the constructed greenhouse. In the 1930s, a palm greenhouse from Tsarskoye Selo was transferred to the garden. The greenhouse of the Tauride Garden has repeatedly become a platform for filming a movie. In Soviet times, about 25 movies were filmed here, including "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson." Today there are excursions and photo shoots in the Greenhouse. 

Events and Festivals

The Tauride Garden traditionally organizes holidays, festivals, lectures and outdoor lessons:

- Every summer, Scottish Dance School open classes take place on Tuesdays
- In late April, in honor of Health Day, a race is held for 0.5, 1, 2.5 and 5 km
- When winter comes, trails for skiing are laid in the garden, and a public ice rink is poured at the stadium
- In the Greenhouse of the Tauride Garden, which is not so far from the Hermitage, concerts and lectures of the European University are regularly held. In addition, music festivals and ikebana exhibitions are organized here.

The greenhouse located in the Garden can boast of a summer atmosphere at any time of the year and is especially popular among city residents and tourists. A large number of rare thermophilic plants from exotic countries with colorful tropical butterflies fluttering above them, as well as stunning floral aromas, please the residents and guests of the Northern capital - especially in the deep of winter.

The greenhouse is equipped so that the visitors can spend time comfortably: “Leto” cafe with a good view operates on the territory of the garden, besides, interesting events are held there regularly: seminars, lectures, photo shoots and concerts of the “Abstrasension” music festival.

In addition, anyone can use the greenhouse as a venue for their event: birthdays and weddings are often celebrated here.

Opening hours: everyday from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. In April, the garden is closed for maintenance.
