  • Palace of Russia Tsar Pavel I built. To defend himself, Pavel himself sketch was designed based on residence regardless of the tenants, have been assassinated in Palace bedroom just 40 days after a somewhat unfortunate Emperor. Solo was sold as a building engineer school, and even Dostoyevsky learned here? I enjoy knowing the historical background and more. Bookcover drew even Christ has become a branch of the Museum of Russia is now displayed portraits of the imperial family of Russia, decorations, etc., but Goldsmith was impressive.

  • Unfortunately, inside the little that remains from the time of Paul, only geometry. Interesting exhibits about the genealogies of the Royal family. An inconvenient logistics Museum, have to walk the same halls on several occasions. Very strict housekeeper. Audio guide, you can take one for two, you can hear well.

  • Ordered a tour for its students 13-14 years old in the Mikhailovsky Castle. It was three years ago, so there are with than compare. Most importantly, the Guide took into account the age of the guys and not all are strong in knowledge of history. Therefore, the information was given by bright, interesting, fascinating historical facts, but also emotionally and beautifully told I was not allowed a chance to escape, even for a moment. The result-in the minds of the boys has accumulated all that old and new that is not learned and confusing it for lessons. Conducted us staircases and rooms which are not open to all visitors that revived interest in the tours. Undoubtedly the restored ceremonial hall sparked delight, all succinctly and clearly, beautifully and luxuriously. Recommend to all age groups to visit the Castle, the main thing-when ordering excursions tell age sightseers.
