Visa free. Includes Peterhof and Catherine's Palace - Private tour

This tour is perfect to relax from the urban bustle and to enjoy the luxury of suburban residences.
Peterhof became a hallmark of Maritime power. It is dedicated to the great victories of Russia on the sea. Therefore, it embodied the dream of Peter the Great about the fountains.

Catherine's Palace was named in honor of the wife of Peter the Great. This is the exact opposite as Yin and Yang. It is on the shore of a dried-up ancient Baltic sea. The highlight of this residece is the famous Amber room. By the way local College graduated such celebrities as the poet Alexander Pushkin, the poetess Anna Akhmatova, historian Lev Gumilev, and artist Kuzma Petrov Vodkin.

Every place is unique and has its own Genius loci. I offer you to appreciate it!
