Sadovaya Dlitsa, 1

This is one of the oldest Petersburg gardens; it was laid out with the participation of the architect C. I. Rossi at the beginning of the 19th century. The Mikhailovsky Garden forms part of the architectural ensemble of the Field of Mars. The park railings, the bridge and the garden pavilion with the elegant landing-stage descending down to the River Moika (see picture in the Map) were built in 1825 to C. I. Rossi’s design.
