Lose yourself in the lush greenery of this park on Yelagin island; a great option in summer or winter.
Green, how I want you green.
If you are a fan of green sightseeing and you enjoy a bit of park culture, there are plenty of parks and gardens in Saint Petersburg, with the Kirov Park being top of the list. Located on Yelagin Island, where you'll find the palace of the same name, Kirov Park is really popular with people from the city, who flock here at weekends or on any sunny day. Construction began in 1931 and part of the park was opened to the public the following year. Kirov Park is splendid at any time of year, whether in summer with the rich colours of its plants and trees or in winter with its ice rink. If you are visiting in winter, you can also hire skis and explore the rest of the island on its frozen lakes and rivers.
