It is nice place near Pavlosk Palace filled with rose bushes.
The Voleyer Pavilion had special memory in my mind as a symbol
of bizarre life manifestation. The pavilion was part of czar
life who was the noblest person in Russia. In 1980 I was scientist
in Academy of Science and together with all other colleges was
told to participate in voluntary help for agricultural enterprise
located near Pavlovsk. No need to say that the job was most unintelligent
At the end of working day our Laboratory staff was planned to
do some birthday celebration for she-scientist associate just
at the field picnic style. But the weather made a correction
in form the rain that had started. It was drizzling but gave
no enjoyment to be under open skies. We did walk to find some
shelter and finally hit the pavilion. It was completely empty
this Volyer Pavilion and by some reason there were tables inside.
The place was perfect for the event. All situation was so surrealistic
mixture of joy of life despite the weather challenge, bitter
feeling of humiliation to be ordered making unqualified job like
a slave for communist regime, elegiac compassion for our noble
predecessors who cannot expect fall of grace for whole chars family
