  • In Tsarskoye Selo, in addition to Catherine, Alexander's and Babolovskogo parks, is also the lower Park, which is located between the highway and Aleksander and Vitebsk railway. There's no majestic palaces but has lovely alleys with benches for rest, Kolonistskij pond, Moskovskie Vorota. For those who arrive in Pushkin is not the first time, I advise to visit is a quiet, peaceful place, take a peek at the territory of Veera, familiarize yourself with the various types of vysazhenyh are there trees, Yes and just walk. To get to the bottom of the Park is quite simple. From the railway station are Blvd past the monument to Ernest Telman (leader of the German Communists in 30-40 years of the 20th century), reaches Moscow gate and the Kolonistskogo pond and leaving the pond to the right of itself going to the Park.

  • We went on a glorious day in January. The interiors are amazing (gold everywhere) and the building looked fantastic in the snow. 
  • Walked around the Alexandrovsky Park in frosty weather, started looking for a place to warm up a bit. This place turned out to be a wonderful Museum "Tsarskoselsky Arsenal. The imperial collection of weapons ", located in the Pavilion of arsenal, which recently opened after restoration. Very nice and informative Museum-chic collection of ancient weapons, Knights Hall. Very interesting information about the history of the Knight "carousels". Visit the exhibition can only be with a tour group. We are lucky we will have joined the group, which has already gained. The tour guide we had soft woman with a quiet, intimate voice that some discord with the content of the exhibition.
