What to expect

Discover stories of the Russian Imperial family and aristocracy on a visit to two former Imperial summer residencies: Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin) and Pavlovsk.

Tsarskoe Selo is home to the stunning baroque Catherine Palace. Pavlovsk Palace is surrounded by the largest landscape park in Europe.

Pavlovsk Palace was built in the late XVIII and early XIX centuries, the time when Classicism developed as the leading arts style in Russia. It is considered to be one of the finest examples of the classical style in Europe.

The other name of Tsarskoe Selo is Pushkin being tightly connected with the life of the famous Russian poet who suffered a tragic death. The first owners of Tsarskoe Selo were women: Catherine I, the wife of Peter I, Elisabeth I, their daughter, and Catherine II. Elisabeth I, after she had inherited Tsarskoe Selo, treated it with special affection and named the palace she commissioned to be built after her mother. Catherine Palace is an impressive baroque reconstruction with rooms decorated with gold and mirrors. You will have a unique chance to visit the breath-taking Amber Room.
