A visit to the Petrovsky Park is less recreational and more a trip down Russia's rich heritage. Created in 1827, the sprawling 50 acres (20 hectares) of lush landscape that surrounds Petrovsky Palace is a social hub for locals. The construction of the castle commenced in 1775 by architect Matvei Kazakov and was used as a stopover by Catherine the Great en route from St. Petersburg. The park houses the monumental Turkish tower and two statues of celebrated astronaut, Yury Gagarin.
