Now, when many do not leave their homes because of the crowns, we offer you to admire the views of the Summer Garden of different years. Postcards from the 1960s and modern photography. Trees frame the castle as before. Porfiry vase rises proudly. The expanse of the Karpiev Pond is calm. No global changes.

Only one detail is striking. On a 1966 postcard, the facade of the Engineering Castle is hidden by scaffolding. A planned restoration is underway, and this did not stop to take a picture and release a postcard.

Life goes on despite temporary difficulties. Health to you and your loved ones.
