This year, a pair of snow-white swans do not slide on the water surface of the pond. They are raising a chick, and this summer they stayed at the zoo. Link: ..

And in June 1972, in the morning, employees of the Summer Garden did not find four swans in the Karpiev Pond. A wanted list was announced throughout the city. It turned out that three fugitives are swimming in the port area, and the fourth swan is next to the cruiser Aurora. Patrol boats were involved in the operation to return the swans. And by the middle of the day the fugitives were returned to the Summer Garden.

The Leningrad newspapers Vecherniy Leningrad, Leningradskaya Pravda and Smena wrote about this incident.

Enjoy your walks in the gardens of the Russian Museum.
