Wow - Vatican's Square is a Blooming Garden with Over 35,000 Flowers and Plants Donated from the Netherlands Every Year at Easter!


To celebrate Easter and to express the joy of the resurrection of Christ, Saint Peter’s Square is transformed into a garden in bloom. More than 35,000 flowers and plants from the Netherlands carpet the parvis of the Vatican Basilica. The floral decorations are created by the workers of the Garden and Environment Service of the Directorate of Infrastructure and Services of the Governorate, with the collaboration of Floral Designers. Together they worked throughout the whole day of Good Friday to prepare and finish the decorations by the following day. 

Not only on the occasion of the Solemnity of Easter, but throughout Holy Week, Saint Peter's Square is adorned with flower arrangements and decorations. This will be carried out by the in-house workers of the Governorate of the Vatican City State, in cooperation with those who have offered plants and flowers.
