Autumnal Sinebrychoff Park 🍁🍂☀️

Sinebrychoff Park was originally the private garden of Russian-born businessman Nikolai Sinebrychoff (1786–1848). He built an Empire-style mansion along Bulevardi, which nowadays houses the Sinebrychoff Art Museum, completed in 1842. Behind the house he established an English-style geometric garden, the original form of the current Sinebrychoff park. 🌳🍃
