Imperial Privacy and Splendour

Culture and History tour in St. Petersburg

Tour Price : Starting from 75 euros and above Duration : 8 hours Languages: Russian, English

Leaving at about 9.00 a.m. we are to pass 20 miles in the south-western direction to visit the area of Peterhof - former Imperial residence by the sea. There we shall first visit the Cottage palace - a small private living (not gala) residence of Tsar Nicholas I and his family (1820ies) built in his favourite Gothic style.

Then we go for about 6 miles westwards to Oranienbaum - to visit the private mansion of empress Catherine II, the Chinese palace (1760 ies) , the only suburban residence around the city not destroyed during WWII, famous for its subtle design of interiors and original parquet floors of 18-19 centuries.

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?
