Description

You will be impressed with the most brilliant emperors' palaces.

Private Pushkin and Pavlovsk tour will take you to the most oustanding suburban palaces of Russian Emperors' family. The first palace is Catherine's palace which was named after the most powerful Russian Empress Catherine the Great and which is located in town of Pushkin (Tsarskoye Selo - means "Tzars’ village"). Exciting azure facades of baroque style and numerous luxurious imperial halls and ballrooms will impress anyone. The charming parks and small pavillions that surround the palace are amazing. Catherine's palace is decorated with rare marble, malachite, gilding but the real masterpiece is the famous Amber room, the unique object of Russian art. The second palace of the tour is situated in the town of Pavlovsk not far from Pushkin. A superb palace and park ensemble, Pavlovsk was a summer residence of the Russian emperor Paul I and his family. The landscape park, one of the largest in Europe, covers an area of 600 hectares. The formation of the Pavlovsk Palace collections was closely connected with the journey by its owners through Europe. They visited workshops of well-known artists, ordering and acquiring paintings, furniture, bronze articles, silk fabrics, china sets, etc. They also brought back to Russia a large number of antique sculptures from Italy, and gifts from European royal courts. Many of these treasures are on view, together with an excellent collection of portraits by Russian artists, and a number of Pavlovsk landscape paintings and drawings.
