  • Pick a day when the weather is fair, with a slight chill in the air. Plan the surprise and lead your partner to one of Saint Petersburg's beautiful botanical gardens. The unexpected adventure begins as you leave the city streets and step onto the exhilarating tree-top canopy walkway. As you move from tree to tree, appreciate the view of the city from this unique vantage point.
  • Once you've completed the walk, find a cozy spot in the garden for a little picnic. Prepare a warm blanket, so you can both enjoy a comfortable rest amid the scenic surroundings. As you feast on your picnic, linger in the peaceful quiet of the nature, sharing warm conversation.
  • Finally, as the day comes to an end, take a leisurely stroll through the gardens. Hand-in-hand, enjoy each other's company while taking in the breathtaking views of the sunset through the treetops.

Preparation steps:

Pack a picnic basket with comfort food and a good-quality blanket to keep you warm while eating.

Make sure to have comfortable footwear as you will be doing a lot of walking. Lastly, don't forget your camera - you wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to capture these unforgettable views and moments.
