About
Big expectations of St Petersburg? Raise them tenfold, as the vocabulary for today is gold, amber and everything fancy! Meet your guide in the hotel lobby and head to the UNESCO-site – Tsarskoe Selo in Pushkin town. The highlight of Tsarskoe Selo is Catherine Palace. Being 325 m long, it will amaze you with splendor decoration, scale, elegant combination of white, sky-blue and gold. The central part of the palace is decorated with Atlanta, caryatids, cartouches and mascarons over the windows and gables.  Discover the themed displays in Catherine Palace with your private guide who will tell you more about the history of the imperial summer residence than any travel book. Explore the displays, devoted to the Romanov Dynasty and Emperor Alexander I, and see court carriages from the 18-19 centuries.
