One Billion Rubles will be spent on the restoration of the Upper Garden of Peterhof

The Peterhof Museum Reserve is ready to provide 932.9 million rubles for the restoration of the Upper Garden, based on information on the public procurement portal posted on August 7 and updated on Monday, 10th.

The work will have to last until the end of 2023. Before this date, the contractor will cut down sick and old plants, install new trellis galleries and lusthauses, and mount modern benches, which will be made of wood and reinforced concrete.

The Upper Garden, a unique monument of the regular park construction of the 18th century, has not undergone a comprehensive restoration for more than 50 years. Large-scale scientific research carried out on the initiative of the Peterhof State Museum-Reserve in 2012-2017 revealed a number of problems in the current state of this monument: the green spaces of the garden are exhausted and have lost their decorative effect; the vertical layout of the garden is partially violated, due to which the paths and lawns of the bosquets are overgrown with moss; drainage and reclamation system is in a limited working condition.

Due to these reasons, the Upper Garden of Peterhof was closed for restoration. It will reopen to the public in 2024, the directorate of the Peterhof Museum-Reserve said on Friday, July 31. More than 50 years have passed since the last restoration, TASS reports. “The structures are worn out, there are many leaks in the fountain systems. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out restoration work, "said Yulia Rozhkova, head of the restoration, reconstruction and overhaul service of the Peterhof. It is planned to change the drainage system of the garden, as due to problems with it, the territory is waterlogged.

The restoration will also affect the fountains "Oak" and "Mezheumny", built in the 1730s and decorated by the architect Rastrelli. "Dubovy" is known for the fact that during the reign of Empress Elizabeth Petrovna in its pool every year on August 1st (August 14, according to the new style), a ritual of consecration of water and sprinkling with holy water of regimental banners of all military units located in Peterhof was performed. The tradition has been revived today. Souce:
