  • You can divide out there for the whole day. BRING FOOD, DRINKS, BATHING SUIT, PLAID AND CAMERA. There's not only insanely beautiful and vast territory (green), but also very good. The atmosphere of nobleness, appeasement. Very beautiful territory. Suitable for all categories and also for photo projects.

  • Since several times was at the Yusupov Palace in St. Petersburg and was impressed by them in connection with this very wanted to visit and summer residence of the family. My visit took place in November and individually, most regrettably, not all kinds of excursions were available. Therefore, I advise to visit in a group and in the summer. The price of one admission ticket to the Park and the Palace was 350 roubles. Available as cash or cashless settlement. Inside the Park is functioning Church of the Archangel Michael, the temple-Tomb ("Colonnade"), the holy gates, the small Palace caprice, the tea house Pavilion, Belvedere Pavilion ruin near the old women of the Moskva River. The Park territory is very neat and tidy. Great place for photo shoots. Opening hours from 01 November to April 20: Park: Monday-Friday from 10.00 to 18.00 (cash register till 17.30) Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 to 19.00 (ticket office until 18.30) expositions and exhibitions Wednesday-Friday from 10.00 till 16.00 (cash register till 15.30) Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 to 17.00 (ticket office till 16.30) weekend (except Park) Monday-Tuesday; last Wednesday of the month-sanitary day in connection with the wedding events in the museum complex, sometimes working time changes.
