#2 of 6 in Nature in St. Petersburg
Island Nature / Park
Enjoy a day of active fun on Yelagin Island. Named after a founding father of the Russian Freemasonry, the area originally served as an aristocratic retreat. Explore the walking or cycling paths, or rent a boat and set out on the canals and ponds. Dress up in 19th-century costumes and have your photo taken in the antique interior of the palace, which Alexander I commissioned for his mother, Empress Maria. Kids will like the ony rides, miniature trains, and playgrounds. During winter, the island also provides a good setting for skating, sledding, and skiing. Head to the plaza at the western tip for views of the Gulf of Finland.
