The Summer Palace is the first brick residence of Peter the Great and is adorned with bas-reliefs representing the victorious Russian naval battles . The interior is spartan but decorous, not comparable to the magnificence of the palaces built in the following years (see for example Menshikov Palace ) .
The Summer Palace is surrounded by the homonymous garden in which stands a beautiful statue of the writer Ivan Krylon . On the pedestal there are bas-reliefs depicting the animals described in his fables.
Just outside the garden we met the Mikhaylovsky Castle, known as the Castle of Engineers, and the Field of Mars, a huge park in the middle of which burns the Eternal Flame commemorating the victims of the Bolshevik Revolution and, finally, the statue of the great strategist, General Suvorov .
