A small but very cozy public garden in the center of Voronezh was named after Peter I, who built the first ships of the Russian Navy at the Admiralty shipyards of Voronezh. It is in the immediate vicinity of the Annunciation Cathedral and the Kramskoy Museum of Fine Arts.

On the initiative of Emperor Nikolai II, the monument of Peter I and 5 ship cannons were installed in the center of the public garden in 1860. The walking alleys are around the monument. The Peter`s public garden is now one of the favorite resting places of the citizens.
