Garden Pavilion
 
 
 
 

The first of two pavilions located in the park is found near the principal entrance of the palace and was used by the Imperial Guard as their primary security station. It's an impressive building, with a fine portico and pleasing proportions, which opens in back onto watery ponds filled with swans and other exotic birds. The pavilion has ten grey columns of striped Siberian marble, jardenieres in white marble, and is painted white, creating a cool tones against the blue sky and the strong greens of the ancient trees in the park.

On special holidays, Yelagin Park was open for the public to enjoy. On musical sundays the chevalier guards of the Empress would give concerts here in dress uniform, and would mix freely with all classes of society.

Le premier des deux pavillions, disposées dans le parc, se trouvait peu éloigne de l'entrée principale, c'etait le corps de garde avec son portique, donnant sur un des étangs de l'ile, avec ses frontons, ses dix colonnes de marbre gris, ses jardinières en marbre blanc, tout blanc lui même comme le palais, il forme encore aujourd'hui un charmant ensemble avec le ton froid du ciel bleu et les verts puissants des vieux arbres du parc.

Dans le temps les jours de fêtes et dimanches la musique des chevaliers gardes de S.M. l'Impératrice dans leurs beaux uniformes venait donner ici des concerts et une foule de promeneurs de toutes les classes de la société venait passer ici ses loisirs.
