Every year in July hostas blossom in front of the Gate.

The Gate was installed according to the order of Alexander I as the homage of thankfulness to commanders and counselors of Alexander I who taken part in the War of 1812 and the military company of 1813-1814 that led to the liberation of Europe from Napoleon.
The portico, including two rows of Doric columns which support a massive entablature, resembles the Moscow Triumph Gate, the latest work of Vasily Petrovich Stasov compositionly. The trellis design with lattice rods - spears and superimposed shields was designed by the architect Adam Menelaws.

The Gate columns and attic and links of the trellis were made of cast iron; the pedestal was made of granite; letters of inscriptions were made of golden bronze.

Inscription on the attic from the side of Sadovaya Street is TO MY DEAR COMRADES; on the attic from the park side there is the inscription in French : A MES CHERS COMPANGONS D'ARMES .
