Saint Petersburg: the Winter Palace and Catherine Palace
On this private one-day tour in Saint Petersburg with a guide in Spanish we visit two imperial palaces of the Russian Tzares. In the morning we arrive at the Winter Palace , the main building of the Hermitage Museum complex. This magnificent royal estate in the heart of Saint Petersburg was the official residence of the Romanov family for more than 200 years. The most prominent Russian and European architects worked on its splendid interior decoration that amazes its visitors to this day. The gala rooms of the Winter Palace designed to astonish foreign diplomats reflect the wealth of the Russian Empire. During the tour, you will also visit other buildings in the museum complex, such as the Grande Hermitage and the New Hermitage, to see the best collections of European art. The masterpieces of artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and others are on display in the halls of these buildings.
In the second half of the day, we headed south from St. Petersburg to the city of Pushkin. Tsarskoye Selo or the Village of the Tsars was a summer property of the ruling family of Russia. It represents a magnificent set of parks and palaces, pavilions, artificial canals, ponds and monuments. The heart of Tsarskoye Selo is the famous Catherine Palace , an embodiment of the Russian Baroque style. During the tour, we will visit the Great Ballroom richly decorated with gilded moldings and other magnificent rooms. The pearl of the palace is the Amber Room , a unique interior, where the walls are covered with panels of natural amber. After having enjoyed the visit, we will walk through the grounds of Parque de Catalina and we will return to Saint Petersburg.
