20: A landscape garden was designed

Already during the Baroque period, there was a building in the palace grounds that served as an orangery and aviary, next to a formal garden, surrounded by a wall. The Butterfly Garden continues this tradition today. When the Saint Petersburg garden architect Karl-Friedrich Thelemann redesigned the park into an English landscape garden, non-winterproof plants were stored in the pineapple conservatory in the neighbouring palace nursery.
