In celebration of the Russian Museum’s 120th anniversary, the “Imperial Gardens of Russia” international festival will be held, for the first time in the Summer Garden, 21-27 June 2018
For 10 years, the Russian Museum’s Mikhailovsky Garden has hosted this festival, at the beginning of summer in the heat of the White Nights season. Each year has been dedicated to a specific topic: the gardens of royal residences and old estates in Russia, the gardens of England, France, Italy, Eastern countries, and avant-garde gardens. Over the years, hundreds of landscape designers from all around the world have taken part in the exhibitions of park and garden art.
This festival will be a true celebration of floristry. The best teams of florists, artists, designers, and decorators will deck the alleys and bosquets of the Summer Garden.
The main alley, sponsored by the European Garden Heritage Network (EGHN), of which the Summer Garden is a member, will accommodate Blossoming Heritage, an exhibition of photographs of the best European court gardens.
We very much hope that the new format of the Imperial Gardens of Russia festival will be to the liking of regular attendees, city residents, and those visiting St Petersburg. We welcome everyone to attend and enjoy Flower Assembly!
