Gatchina Palace Garden

The Gatchina Palace has a great landscape park made between 1766 and 1781 for Count Grigori Orlov. The Palace, standing on a hill overlooking a lake, was designed by the Italian architect Antonio Rinaldi. The garden and park are broadly in the English style of the eighteenth century, drawing freely from several periods. There are temples, pavilions, bridges, an Isle of Love, a Dutch Garden and Labyrinth.
