Excursion to Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin), 4 hours
Tsarskoye Selo, or the Tsar`s village, about 25 kilometres from St. Petersburg, was the home of the imperial family from the days of Peter the Great until the time of the last tsar, Nicolas II. It is a fascinating monument of world architectural and gardening art during the 18th and 19th centuries. Here you can enjoy a beautiful English-style park, unrestrained by the geometrical formality of the «Russian Versailles.» The centre of the ensemble is the Catherine Palace, containing exquisite objects d`art, furniture, paintings and unique collections of porcelain, amber and bronze.
