Palatial Suburbs of St.Petersburg

The suburbs of St. Petersburg are famous all over the world for their picturesque parkways, impressive palaces, refreshing fountains, reflective lakes and quiet pavilions. Each palace-park ensemble has its own unique beauty and fascinating history. See the cascades of fountains, get splashed by streams of water and find out how a self-powered water line was built in Petergof. Admire the luxury and elegance of the favourite palace of three Russian empresses and take the time to discover the Amber Room, along with the labyrinth and geometry of the Catherine Park in Tsarskoe Selo. Find out why the Constantine Palace became the Russian Federation’s state residence in the town of Strelna. It’s worth taking a trip to Pavlovsk to stroll around the largest landscape park in Europe, which consists of 600 hectares and can be visited at any time of day no matter the time of year, giving people more freedom to enjoy themselves and completely relax.
