What awaits you
Pyatigorsk, drowning in flowers I will take you through the Nikolaevsky, Elizavetinsky flower gardens and the Emmanuelevsky park in a fashionable English style, where Pushkin and Lermontov, Nicholas I and Tolstoy walked. Like our eminent predecessors, we will breathe in wonderful aromas, look into cool grottoes and airy rotundas. Admire the masterpieces of the first architects of Bernardazzi and Upton Waters. You will walk to an antique-style gazebo, from where a wonderful panorama of the whole Pyatigorsk opens, and in good weather you can even admire Elbrus. And in the old building of the Elizabethan Gallery with a view of flower beds, parks and mountain peaks, we can relax over a cup of coffee or tea
Stories of the "water society" Among the expressive park landscapes, stories and images of past eras will come to life. You will find out in which grotto Lermontov liked to rest, where he "brought" the heroes of the story "Princess Mary", and you will see the place where the poet danced for the last time in his life. Find out what the caves and pavilions with the poetic names Calypso, Aeolian Harp and Bellevue were for. And I will also tell you about the peculiarities of the mineral waters of Pyatigorsk, I will help you find several stone wells-baths with healing water and show the stream of hot hydrogen sulfide water flowing down the mountain slope.
