... a feast of 800 years of Russian landscape culture. Hayden's photographs are rich and evocative, his prose refreshingly clear and erudite Gardens Illustrated ... beautifully illustrated throughout and packed with anecdotes bringing back not only these extraordinary parks and gardens, but the whole lost world in which they were created Daily Telegraph ... a proper old-fashioned coffee-table book, lovingly researched and superbly photographed ... the result is a revelation Independent on Sunday


Garden historian Peter Hayden narrates a comprehensive history of the parks and gardens of Russia, spanning a thousand years from the first Byzantine-influenced gardens in the tenth century AD, through to the present day. Along the way, he discusses the influence of Peter the Great, who introduced ideas, plants and designers from Holland, France and Germany to create St Petersburg's Summer Garden and the great formal garden at Peterhof by the Gulf of Finland. The introduction of the English style of landscaping owed much to Catherine the Great, and British gardeners were recruited to lay out parks for the Empress and rich nobles. With a wealth of illustration and with detailed discussion of some of the most beautiful and historically interesting parks and gardens in the world, this pioneering book promises to become an instant classic.

Since the climate is not conducive to gardening, many may be surprised to learn that Russia has some of the most beautiful gardens and parks in the world. What better way to visit them but from the comfort of an easy chair with garden historian Peter Hayden as your guide?
A former chairman of the Garden History Society and an honorary member of the Swedish Society for Dendrology and Park Culture, Hayden knows his subject well. He's the ideal person to compile "Russian Parks and Gardens," which is the first comprehensive history of Russian landscape to be printed in English. Many of the photos included in this volume were taken by Hayden himself and had not been published outside of Russia. There's a wealth to enjoy in 256 pages highlighted by 165 color photographs and 100 archive illustrations.
Hayden's history covers more than 800 years beginning with the initial gardens in the 12th century. We learn that it was Peter the Great who first introduced formal gardens to his homeland by bringing designers and plants from Holland, France, Germany, and Italy. Today St. Petersburg's Summer Garden, which covers 27 acres, is the most popular open space in all of Russia.
What is known as the English style of landscaping was brought to Russia by Catherine the Great who hired British gardeners to design parks for the privileged. In addition, many parks and gardens were created by wealthy families who had the wherewithal to do so, as well as access to thousands of serfs to do the work.
Naturally, the Revolution took its toll on quite a number of Russia's parks and gardens but many have been restored so that they are even more glorious today.
"Russian Parks and Gardens" is an amazing contribution to the annals of landscape history, and a joy to behold.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exquisite Gardens with A Rich History Are Beautifully Described 16. März 2012

It is a pleasure to find one of those rare books that is well written, well researched and informative. Having visited a small portion of the St. Petersburg and Moscow gardens this year, the plentiful photographs are as beautiful as the visually abundant gardens deserve. It would be a rich adventure indeed to visit all of the gardens and parks described in this book. The author engrosses the reader both with his understanding of the cultural history and landscape architecture that comes together to create some of the world's finest gardens and his delight in discovering these remote garden masterpieces. Russia though isolated from the west by distance and politics, has an abundance of beautiful gardens full of individual expression and unique cultural character.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fills a hole in garden history writing 13. April 2008
Von Lupo Montegrigio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A true joy to derail from the well-trotten road from Britain to France ending in Italy. At last we are presented with the more unknown gardens of Russia. It's a beautiful book, well written by an authority and with great photos. I especially liked the pavillion disguised as heap of firing-wood, must be one-of-a-kind in this world.
