Winter and snow make St. Petersburg even more beautiful in some respects. This also applies to the suburbs which can offer some special entertainments for the cold season. That is why we invite you to Pavlovsk - the last royal summer residence near St. Petersburg. Here you will visit the beautiful Russian classicism style palace and have a 30 minutes Russian Troika horse riding along the wonderful park. And that's probably going to be the highlight of the entire tour as you are going to get the most exciting impressions with this ride.

Troika appeared and got its name about 200 years ago. It is the only harnessing in the world with horses racing in different gait. The shaft horse in the center must have a quick and efficient trot, and the trace horses on both sides need to gallop. Herewith a very high speed of 45-50 km/h can be developed. To make you feel the authenticity of country estate life we included a 30 minutes Russian Troika horse riding in the tour. The park is planned to preserve the natural landscape and emphasize the beauty of the Russian North. While riding in the horse drawn sleigh you will see the snowy plants and shrubs, bridges and a cascade of ponds, pavilions and sculpture harmoniously inscribed in the natural relief and listen to the interesting narration of your guide.

Pavlovsk is famous for its wonderful palace and park ensemble. Its construction began during the reign of Catherine the Great, in 1782. After the accession to the throne of Paul I, the Palace became his favorite residence, which by his decree was significantly expanded and acquired a more majestic and impressive appearance. In its halls you will find a very rich and diverse collection of porcelain, faience, ceramics and glass, which has the unique pieces of the most famous manufactories of Europe and Russia. Pavlovsk Palace is also famous for its collection of art fabrics, which is admitted as one of the most significant in our country. It includes various items from the refined handkerchiefs, sewed round by the finest handmade lace, to monumental tapestry.
