Tsarskoye Selo State Museum Preserve, Pushkin

Built in the 1600s, the palace originally belonged to Swedish nobility until Peter the Great gave it to his wife, Catherine I, in 1708. Now you can visit this Russian Baroque palace and view its collections of art, furniture, and decor. Tour the grounds--including the park and gardens surrounding the palace--and discover the lifestyle and aesthetic tastes of the last of the Romanov dynasty.

  • A wonderful place to visit at any time of the year very close to the center of St. Petersburg. Elektrichka, 40 minutes, and day trips on the Royal Park, is logged on in Russian history. The city itself is also quite calm, quiet and pleasant
