Andrey Vereshchagin - Private Guide in St. PetersburgMember Since 2008
Big suburban adventure
Culture and History tour in St. Petersburg
Tour Price : Starting from 85 euros Duration : 9 hours Languages: Russian, English
Leaving at about 9.00 a.m. we are to pass 15 miles in the southern direction to visit first Catherine's palace and park in the town of Pushkin - sumptuous residence created in its present shape mostly 1750 ies for the Russian empress Elisabeth.
The palace features the biggest hall of all numerous suburban palaces around St.Petersburg - above 800 sq m - all covered with guilded woodcarvings; another attraction - the Amber room.
After visiting the palace and a short stroll through the regular part of the park - we take a ride for about an hour in the direction of Peterhof - former Imperial residence by the sea. There we shall visit the Cottage palace - a sharp contrast with the first visit of the day: a small private living (not gala) residence of Tsar Nicholas I and his family (1820ies) built in his favourite Gothic style.
The last but not least - Peterhof Lower park with its over 180 fountains still operating without pumps since 1723... If required - lunch can be organised at the gallery of the Grand Palais of Peterhof. Not yet enough?
