Explore with me the the suburban Imperial Palaces


Dear guests! When you come to visit St. Petersburg and want to get a complete impression of its Imperial atmosphere, you should see numerous summer palaces. And the most famous ones are situated in the former summer imperial residences Peterghof and Tsarskoye Selo ( the town of Pushkin nowadays). We will enjoy Russian baroque and classical interiors of the 18-19 th centuries, including the magnificent Amber Room. You will walk around the French regular parks. Peterghof is also beloved for its numerous fountains and cascades. So, you will be fascinated with its splendor!
