Pavlovsk is an outstanding palace and park ensemble of the late 18th – early 19th centuries, which was built as a summer residence of the Emperor Paul I and his family.
Pavlovsk is the youngest of the Palace and Park ensembles in the vicinity of St. Petersburg. When in the middle of the 18th century Tsarskoye Selo became the summer residence of the Russian emperors, the lands to the South (present-day Pavlovsk) were a place for a royal hunting. In 1777 Catherine II presented these lands to her son, the future Emperor Paul I. So 1777 became the date of Pavlovsk foundation.
We offer you a chance see the enormity of the Pavlovsk Park and the incredible sophistication of the Pavlovsk Palace with your own eyes.
