After battling the crowds at the Hermitage and taking in one too many masterpieces at the Russian Museum, you're going to need a place to unwind. So why not go to the same spot Peter the Great used to go for some R&R?
There are some attractions of mild interest here, including the Summer Palace, the Coffee House and the Tea House -- though you will find no coffee or tea at them. Most come to the Summer Garden to just soak in the atmosphere. Classical gardens, Italian statues and lovely fountains will let you know that you made the right call to visit.
The Summer Garden is accessible from the Gostiny Dvor metro stop. Admission is free except for summer weekends when there is a nominal charge.
