Favorite thing: The Garden is about 200 years old.
The edict of the founding of Imperial botanical garden at the public cost in the Crimea was signed in Petersburg on the 10th of June, 1811 with the active participation of scientist-botanist, inspector in silkworm breeding on the South of Russia, M.Biberstein.
At that same year near village Nikita 1012,5 acres of land was bought from landowner Smirnov. M.Biberstein offered his assistant, 30-years old K.Steven, the post of the manager of the garden. In September 1812 the first plantings were made. So, the beginning of the modern State Nikita botanical gardens had been marked.
During 14 years of tireless activity K.Steven, nicknamed afterwards "Nestor of Russian botanists", had gathered more than 450 species, hybrids and kinds of plants, practically from all the countries of the world.
