The Hanging Garden is an architectural construction typical of
18th-century palatial ensembles. It is situated on the first floor
over the former royal stables and coach-houses and occupies the
space between the two galleries connecting the northern and southern
pavilions of the Small Hermitage. The central path of the garden
is adorned with decorative sculpture. Near the northern pavilion
is a parterre with a marble fountain in its centre. The garden is
surrounded with small decorative statues specially designed for
it. Along the longitudinal galleries near the walls there are little
wooden pigeon-houses shaped as garden pavilions.
