Tsarskoe Selo Tour

  • Included meals: No
At the set time, our guide will pick you up at your hotel or another place of stay in St. Petersburg and take for the tour to Tsarskoe Selo. You will travel by a private car or van to the town of Pushkin – this is how the place is called now.

The standard programme includes the Catherine Palace & Park. On your Catherine Palace visit, you will see the staterooms and drawing rooms used by the members of the Royal family. We shall not miss the top attraction of the palace - the Amber room. Decorated with amber panels of different colours, the room, sometimes called “eighth wonder of the world”, is one of Russia's most treasured artefact.

Continue with a walk in Catherine Park. You will see beautiful alleys and ponds, royal bathhouses, Cameron's gallery, 18th century grotto and the Hermitage pavilion.

Transfer back to St. Petersburg or stay for the extended programme, which may include the following visits and activities:

1.      World War I Museum «Russia in the Great War» in Martial Chamber.
2.      Alexander Palace. Built in 1796, it was the main residence of Emperor Nicholas II. From there the Russian Royal Family was taken to their Siberia exile in August 1917.
3.      A horse-drawn sleigh ride in Catherine Park in summer and in Alexander Park in winter.

Should you like to add these optional visits, please let us know in advance.
