In the Travel Palace of Peter I stayed during his trips from St. Petersburg to Kronstadt under construction. This is the earliest building in Strelna of those that survived to this day.

At the time of Peter the orchard garden or berry was named the Upper Garden, and served as economic rather than aesthetic function. In the greenhouses there are growing peach, of orange, apricot, bay and fig trees, cherries, gooseberries, pears and grapes, a variety of herbs and flowers (roses, jasmine, etc.). In the 40s of the XVIII century, this garden was a source of artichokes, Russian, Turkish and German cucumber, dill, radishes, sorrel, and various berries, watermelons, melons and potatoes for the royal kitchen.

In the XIX century in the greenhouses of an orchard began to grow new rare species of plants, very exotic for our country, which at that time enjoyed great popularity among the European monarchs and bred in their gardens - tree ferns and palms.

It is believed that the first hive at the behest of Peter brought from Dorpat, and he personally looked after by the bees. Next to grow Pchelnikov honey scented plants and culture - mint, lemon balm, basil and oregano.
