Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Prince Grigory Potemkin received the title of Prince of Tauride and estate lands (garden and palace) for leading a successful attempt to conquer Crimea for Russia. The garden was laid out in 1783-1800 by the English garden master V. Gould during the construction of the Tauride Palace.
The garden was badly damaged by the floods of 1924 and during the siege of Leningrad. The first restoration took place in 1958. The second restoration was carried out in 1997-2001. Old trees have been preserved mainly along the borders of the Tauride Garden. The monument to S. A. Yesenin was erected in 1995.
In summer, there are many people sunbathing on the lawns of the park. A very beautiful park.

Tauride Gardens surround the main building: Tauride Palace, which is now a government building. Gardens are located in the surroundings of St. Petersburg and they are opened to the public (the main building is closed), so you can come here with or without children and run, walk, do sport, sit or only relax, while you eat or drink something. Really, when I visited these place (October-2018), it was full of people (tourists and people from St. Petersburg).

Came across this park while we were just walking around the area. Had no idea where we were but I'm glad we found here. Even it was a winter, this par was still so beautiful. With all white snow around, trees and everything. People were here to walk their dogs, jogging, and walking. It really gives you a great and a very peaceful atmosphere. I can't even imagine how great this park is in the summer time..

Love spending time in the park when the weather permits. Such a beautiful peaceful pleace to walk around, away from all the city noise. Sit on the bench and read, eat ice cream in the summer ( they sell local ice cream in carts around the park) or enjoy saslik in th park restaurant.

Just going east off the Fontanka River toward Smolny Cathedral, we reached at the place of that congenial relatively small green area, in the Potemkinskaya str. This quiet spot was in the past an estate of Grigory Potemkin, one of the favorites of Catherine the Great.
These Tavricheskiy Gardens were designed or landscaped in truly Romantic style, in the goal to get as more as possible a ressemblance to the nature, with all the ponds, canals and picturesque rolling landscape. Nowadays we can enjoy in that gardens, in walkings on their paths, in practising some sports, or simply in taking the sunbathe, having some drinks and above all in one amazing quietness.

Not very well known or advsertised, so yet free of annoying crowds, fast food kiosks etc.
Amazing place with its own athmosphere and lots of small cozy corners, couple of pools, comfy benches.
