Tavricheskiy Park was established around the Tavricheskiy palace constructed by Catherine the Great for duke Potyomkin - Tavricheskiy
The palace was inspired by Old Classicism style manors.
The manor includes a big garden with greenhouses, artificial ponds and park pavilions. In the middle of XIX-th century the garden was opened for visitors. In wintertime there were ice rinks and sleighing tracks on the ponds. Today one the garden's territory there is located a greenhouse with unique uncommon plants. In the park there are many sports grounds, which are the favorite place of chess players. Nowadays in the building of the palace there is functioning an Inter-Parliamentary Assembly.
