Pavlovsk palace & park

Description

This tour combines visits to the former summer Royal residences: splendid baroque style Catherine Palace in Pushkin and elegant classical style Palace of Paul I in Pavlovsk.
Take a pleasant drive from St. Petersburg through the suburbs to the opulent Catherine Palace.This estate, in what was formerly known as Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin),was the summer residence of the imperial family. Explore its grand state rooms, the superb white marble Grand Staircase and the spectacularly baroque Great Hall, an astonishing room of gilt, carved wood and mirrors and the famous Amber Roomlooted by the Nazis and seems lost forever. Recently Russian craftsmen piece-by-piece have reconstructed the dazzling panels of semiprecious stone which leaves an observer breathless.
On the way to Pavlovsk you will have a chance to try traditional Russian food in a local restaurant. Very often lunch in this restaurant is accompanied by traditional Russian musicians. After break for lunch explore another gem of the Russian heritage, the Pavlovsk ensemble.The Palace was a gift from Catherine the Great to her son Paul on the occasion of the birth of his son Alexander. The outstanding architect of that time Charles Cameron brilliantly combined the style of Italian villa and traditional Russian estate. The ensemble’s fame rests on the splendor of its interiors and great art collection as well as on the beauty of one of the largest landscape park in Europe. Admire elegant rooms of the Emperor Paul I and charming rather then grand rooms of his wife Maria.
