The modest palace is set amid the lovely Summer Gardens, where Peter the Great held "assemblies" attended by aristocrats eager to maintain their social standing.

The Summer Gardens are a great way to spend some time. From the endless array of waterfalls, to the overhanging walkways, sculptures, river enbankment pathway and scenic cafe, this was one of my highlights of my visit to St Petersburg.

Take a stroll through the immaculate alleys or find a bench and admire the views. The summer garden is an ideal place to escape the summer heat or the crowds of tourists.

Good place for an evening stroll. Actually rather busy, and much of the green space is fenced off. But it is good for people watching, and the fountains are fun. Lots of snacks available too.

If you have a camera or cell phone you just have to visit here. The views of the gardens are nothing short of spectacular. We were there at 10:00 when the fountains come to life. Unbelievable!
