History Of Patriarshiy Garden
November 30, 2015 17:04


The Patriarshiy Garden belongs to the most ancient city district of Vladimir - the so-called New City surrounded by ramparts in XII century at the time of reign of the Prince Andrei Bogolyubskiy. However, the garden territory had no certain name at that time.

The first specific mentions of the Patriarshiy Garden belong to XVI century. The garden was assigned to the Rozhdestvensky Monastery that was directly subordinate to the patriarch. However, the name was often changed: according to the administrative subordination of the monastery, it was called Patriarshiy, Synodalnyi, Arkhiereyskiy.

Whatever the name of the garden was, they always planted fruit trees and medicinal plants here. The main trees were cherry trees: there were as many as five varieties of them, which is usually considered a rarity. Of course, all the splendor was gone after the revolution. The monastery was nationalized, and an agricultural experimental station was opened in the place of the garden.

Then it was badly damaged during the World War: the trees were frozen, dried, cut down for firewood. After the war Soviet authorities recalled that the gardens were needed not only by the reactionary elements, then young naturalists – the followers of Michurin - came to the Patriarshiy Garden. Their congress was held in Vladimir in 1948. The followers of Michurin, even despite their young age, were engaged in a holy deed of breeding gardens in the cities ruined by the war; and they revived the Patriarshiy Garden under the name of the Garden of Sixteen Republics (later – Children’s Park of the same republics) that became the city station of young naturalists.
