I've got few roses in my new garden and I don't know what they are. Any ideas?

Click on the link figrat the photos are on photo bucket. I don't know what the roses are called but your pictures are lovely and so is your garden Karolina.

In short, no. There are tens of thousands of rose varieties and many are almost identical. I suggest you go to a website such as Peter Beales, insert what details you have ie colour, height, scent, and that will narrow it down to a few hundred perhaps. Then go through each and every one untilyou find the most likely candidate. I have 73 different roses and have learned the names of all of them but in a blind test perhaps only 'Peace' or 'Rosa rugose rubra' would stand out. With roses in garden centres and nurseries now coming out, I'd take a bloom or three along and see if you can match them up.

I should have added, speak to the previous house holder and search for buried labels at the bottom of the stems.
