Peterhof Gardens and Catherine Palace in Pushkin Tour in One Day

Get the best out of your stay in St. Petersburg by visiting two spectacular locations on one excursion: Peterhof and Pushkin (The Village of the Tsars) with a private guide in Spanish. The famous imperial residences of the Russian royal family are undoubtedly the jewels of your city break, impossible to forget.

Discover the Grand Cascade of the magnificent Peterhof Lower Park with its unique fountain system that was specially designed to amaze guests and still perfectly realizes this idea 300 years later. The variety of water fountains and jokes that bang in different directions fascinates with their beauty. Peterhof does not cease to admire both the residents of St. Petersburg and foreigners: it is impossible to get used to such perfect views. The most important architectural structure in the whole of Peterhof is the Grand Palace. It occupies the dominant position in the composition of the park and crowns the Great Waterfall. The elegant building stretched its facade along the terrace for almost 300 meters, it is decorated with galleries and golden domes: the wing of the church and the wing of the coat of arms.

After exploring the Upper and Lower Peterhof Parks, we moved to Catherine the Great's favorite summer residence, Tsarskoye Selo (the Villa of the Tsars, modern Pushkin). Throughout the 18th and early 20th centuries, Tsarskoe Selo was the official summer residence of the Russian Empire. The compositional center of the residence is the Catherine Palace , a beautiful building in the Russian Baroque style. The facade of the palace attracts attention with a vivid blue color that contrasts with decorations, figures and stucco ornaments in white. The Great Hall of the Palace and the Golden Row of the main rooms, among which is the world-famous Amber Chamber , amaze visitors in luxury. After theexcursion to the Catherine the Great Palace , we also walk through the Catherine Park, which covers 107 hectares of land and is a perfect place to enjoy a good summer day away from the busy streets of Saint Petersburg.
