Peterhof (from May to October) and Pushkin (Tsarskoe Selo) 

Personal guide service for 10 hours, coach is provided for 10 hours.

09.00 13:00 Excursion to Peterhof - The palace-and-park ensemble of Peterhof is a historical and architectural monument of 18-19 centuries.  A summer residence of Peter the Great, Peterhof Complex with its palaces, parks and fountains, meant to be a symbol of victory of the Russians over the Swedes, is perhaps the most famous suburb of Saint-Petersburg. The construction works started in 1714 and in 1723 the complex was solemnly opened. The appearance and the inner decoration of the palaces (Grand Palace, Monplaisir, Marly, Hermitage) underwent several changes according to the fashion and to the tastes of the ruling Emperors and Empresses but the layout of the Lower Park remained mostly as it was intended by Peter the Great. Hundreds of fountains, ornamental patterns of parterres, golden statues in the Lower Park and the Upper Garden are real masterpieces that impress everybody who comes there. Besides the Grand Palace with its 300-meter suite of rooms created by the master of Baroque style F.B .Rastrelli, there are 20 museums with permanent and temporary exhibitions in Peterhof Complex (Special Treasury, Catherine's Block, Cottage, Bath Block, etc). 

13.00-14.00  Lunch in the city (extra cost from ~6euro p/p)

14.00 – 18.00: Excursion to Tsarskoe Selo which is a suburb of Saint-Petersburg, located about 25 km. to the south of St. Petersburg, and famous for its palaces and parks. This suburb is of a special importance, as it is closely connected with the life and the creative work of a great Russian poet Pushkin. The town bore the name of Pushkin from 1937 to 1992. The palace-park ensembles of Tsarskoe Selo were formed during a century and a half. During the reign of Empress Elizabeth Tsarskoe Selo became a state residence. The architect Rastrelli designed a sumptuous palace, a diamond of Russian Baroque; a regular style park was laid out in front of the palace. In the second half of the 18th century, during the reign of Catherine the Great, several rooms of the palace were redecorated by Cameron in Classical style; besides the regular park a landscape park appeared. The main gem of the Catherine Palace is the Amber Room, revived by the time of the celebration of the tercentenary of Saint-Petersburg.
