The inspiration for the creation of such an unusual garden was the painting by Vasily Kandinsky “Composition II”. It is so difficult to imagine that this painting was painted almost 100 years ago, in 1923, and how relevant and modern it is in our present time.

There are several relaxation areas in the garden. During the day, you can read a book in the shade of a tree or relax in the Jacuzzi and sunbathe, or you can drink coffee by the pond. In the evening, it is cozy to sit with a company around the campfire on soft poufs.
