This guided tour includes Catherine's palace tour with the world's famous Amber Room and the peaceful gardens with multiple photo opportunities. Catherine's Palace and the surrounding parks were created by Empress Elizabeth and Catherine the Great, which is why Pushkin was formerly known as 'village of the tsar's' (Tsarskoe Selo). The palace, with its famous Amber Room, is an impressive post-WWII reconstruction. The adjoining Cameron Gallery has a magnificent view of the park and the Agate Room. The gardens of Catherine Park, which are spectacular in the snow, are dotted with unusual buildings, including a Chinese village.
A relaxing walk in Peterhof Lower Gardens with a scenic view of hundreds of fountains. It's a real engeneering masterpiece with no pumps, it a unique location, selected specificly to make this miracle happen. All the force and the power of the fountaing are provided by the force of gravity. A great photo opportunity for keen photographers. Take some time to see the surrounding gardens and Peter's villa Monplaisir. Unfortunately in winter the fountains are turned off and the garden statues are covered by wooden boxes.
The fastest way to get to or from Peterhof during the busy summer season. Saves a lot of time and gives you a chance to take a nap:). The boats depart from the piers in the very center of the city, thus giving you a unique free bonus - a chance to enjoy the stunning panorama of the Neva banks.
This palace was purchased by the wealthy Yusupov family in 1830 and since then it was the main house for the family. A special wing was built to house their art collection. It also was the scene of the grizzly murder of the sleazy Siberian peasant Rasputin, who was exercising too much influence over the royal family for Felix Yusupov's liking. There is a Rasputin tour, and you can see where Felix and his entourage tried to poison and shoot Rasputin in the cellar in 1916, before they beat him and chucked him into the river, where he finally died.
The symbol of Saint Petersburg - onion domed cathedral that stands out from the neo-classical surroundings of the city-center. The church is decorated with lots of mosaics inside and outside, the domes are covered with colorful enamels. The church was build on the very place where Tsar Alexander II was mortally wounded in 1881.
