The name PAVILION comes from the French word “pavillon”, which means tent, marquee.
The pavilion is a small garden building, which differs from the gazebo with its closed walls. This allows you to feel more comfortable during bad weather. In the pavilions, large windows were usually made to admire the beauty of the surrounding garden.

As Andrei Bolotov wrote in the middle of the 18th century: “The summer pavilion should stand on a place lined with trees and arranged according to the exact rules of good taste with the possible diligence, is there any need for the avenue to correspond to it. Thick and cool shadows, pleasant greenery, trees planted in various ways, but always in such an order that they make a majestic and noble appearance, a vast pond, and all of them, without any empty decorations, will present a picture that will correspond to the splendor and splendor of this building … “.

At present, there are several pavilions in the gardens of the Russian Museum. In the Mikhailovsky Garden, this is the Rossi pavilion. In the Summer Garden – Coffee House, Tea House and Dovecote Pavilion, recreated in 2011
