  • Selected weekday-5/12 to quietly and without fuss a visit to one of the palaces of St. Petersburg-Elaginoostrovskij Palace Museum. But to our great regret, the Palace is closed for restoration! Saw the architecture of the Palace from the street and went into Stable Housing, where you can 15:00 and 17:00 look at excursions items decoration and the interiors of the Palace in passing there exhibition "SNIMAETSYA KINO"! Well though so day gift not swim!)))

  • Park of culture and rest named after Kirov, that on Elaginskom Island holds costume balls. Now, when the Elaginoostrovskij Palace on the restoration, in the Frejlenskom case. Paying a reasonable amount, you get a choice of ladies dresses, and Knights-black tie, the uniforms of the pre-revolutionary era, the era of noble gatherings and balls. For you will pick up the gloves, accessories to dress, clean the bottom of the shirt body, dance dancing shoes. We were treated to coffee-tea and sweets. Train main elements of dance, will explain the rules of conduct for ladies and gentlemen at the ball, "tongue" fan. And you whirl in the rhythm dances: Polonaise, Mazurkas and other historic dances, immersed in a while. I got a great deal of fun. Dance program took about an hour and a half. Those who have created a holiday for us, very welcoming and professional. Very pleased with this reasoning as jashhechki, safes for valuables: wallets, phones (at the ball they are not needed). Professional photographer, which you can later redeem their photo. It is not forbidden to make their but I not selfit, and dance.

  • Elaginskij Park is ideal for walking in sunny weather. An incredibly beautiful place, lots of tracks and bridges-a walk in the Park brings a true pleasure. In the middle of the Park and is the snow-white Elaginskij Palace. It was built for Empress Maria Fyodorovna and really looks feminine, as if woven from lace. Entrance and Park, and the Palace is charged, but it's worth it to take a stroll and enjoy the magnificent views. Get to the Park quite simply-we went to the place the old village (since visited Buddhist temple Datsan) and then just gone a little bridge, who must live or maintain directly in the Park

  • One of the best parks in spb. Plenty squirrels.
  • The museum is not this much interested but the place and palace are perfect. Needs new idea to be added there to attract youth.
  • beautifull
  • This palace is just a former dacha, but look at its scale!
  • Perfect

Best things to do in St. Petersburg

Where to stay in St. Petersburg

For luxury hotels with a price tag to match, you can't beat the city's historical heart--Palace Square--and Nevsky Prospekt, the main avenue that connects the square to the Neva River. The area around St. Isaac's Cathedral, at the west end of Nevsky Prospekt, also offers a great selection of luxury and mid-range options. If you want to see the other side of the city, consider staying on Vasilyevsky Island, at the mouth of the river. Increased competition means that St. Petersburg now offers a wide range of inexpensive but funky hostels scattered throughout the city.
