City’s Gardens

There are a lot of green areas for walks in the center, like the Champ de Mars, the Mikhaylovsky Garden (near the Saviour on Blood), the Summer Garden, the Tavrichesky Garden. It’s best to have a walk or a bicycle trip through the Kamenny Island where beautiful private houses of various styles (including some art nouveau stuff) stand in the middle of a large park.
