From June 28 to August 25, the Admiralty pavilion in the Catherine Park houses the photo exhibition Mikhail Rozanov, Andrey Karagodin: Natural Philosophy by photographer Mikhail Rozanov and historian Andrey Karagodin.

This free exhibition offers 48 photographs taken in six great parks around Europe: Emperor Hadrian’s Villa near Rome and the Boboli Gardens in Florence (Italy), Versailles (France), the Sanssouci Park and Palace in Potsdam (Germany), Pavlovsk and Tsarskoe Selo.

Referring to the 16th-century English philosopher Francis Bacon’s words that ‘God Almighty first planted a garden’, all of the photographs of display show how people, although creating gardens and parks differently at different times, essentially always wanted the same thing: a return to paradise lost.

Opening Hours: 11.00–19.00 Daily, except Tuesday and Thursday
