    Can you describe Saint Petersburg in one word? Which word will it be? Grandeur? Gloomy? Strange? Or maybe mysterious?

On the board of a comfortable tourist bus you will experience unforgettable emotions as you will discover more and more about the glorious city of Peter the Great.

    The Summer Garden is located at the place where the Fontanka River flows out of the Neva River. It was founded in 1704 by order of Peter the Great, who was personally involved in its planning. The Summer Garden is laid out according to strict geometrical principles. It was a traditional location for courtly life outside the palace and many balls were held here. Relax and take a break in the charming Summer Garden!

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Field of Mars (Marsovo Pole), St. Petersburg 191186 Russia
    This park complex is located in the center of St. Petersburg and is known mainly as a place for jogging and relaxing. And no wonder, because it is distinguished by grooming and beauty, and not by the abundance of tourist sites.
    The main attraction located in the central part of the park is a memorial. It was erected in 1917 under the title “To Heroes-fighters for the freedom of Russia, who fell a victim in this struggle”, dedicating to the victims of the February revolution. Many famous revolutionary figures of that time are buried here.


    Duration: 30 minutes

    The central object of the park is the pool and fountains, as well as a 22-meter-high granite column stylized as a lighthouse. The central alley leads to this composition. The park has planted 300 trees of valuable species; 300 ornamental apple trees; 300 trees and shrubs; 70 limes.

    Day 3: The Lower Park of Peterhof – Park “Alexandria”

    Stop At: Park And Gardens of Peterhof, Razvodnaya st., 2, Peterhof, St. Petersburg Russia
    Located on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, 34 km from the Saint Petersburg, Peterhof looks as if it were from a fairytale book or some epic novel of past centuries. There are a lot of vast parks, graceful sculptures, grandeur palaces and mind-blowing fountains. Thousands of people from all corners of the Earth come to Russia in order to witness it.
    Once Peter the Great travelled to Versailles and got impressed by the greatness and beauty of this palace. Then he decided that Russia should have something as great as Versailles within its borders, but that time it wasn’t possible – the Russian Empire was at war against the Kingdom of Sweden. Time passed, the war was over and later the magnificent and enchanting Peterhof was constructed as a grandiose triumphal monument glorifying the greatness of Russia and the victory in the Great Northern War. Even now the glory of this palace shines and overwhelms its visitors, and you can become one of them by paying a visit to a former summer residence of House Romanov.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Aleksandria Historical Park, Razvodnaya, 2, Peterhof, St. Petersburg 198516 Russia
    Alexandria Park is named after its first owner - Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, wife of Nicholas I. The sun, flowers, shady groves of old oaks, the "music of water" streams, expanses of meadows - all this is Alexandria - a family nest of four generations of the Romanov dynasty.
    Duration: 2 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    Accommodation included: Overnight in Citytel Oktiabrskaya, 4*

    Day 4: Optional: Excursion day tour to Catherine’s park in Pushkin and Pavlov’s park

    Stop At: Catherine Palace and Park, Sadovaya St., 7 Tsarskoye Selo, Pushkin, St. Petersburg 196601 Russia
    The Catherine Park, like most of the parks around the Imperial palaces, features both a formal garden and a landscape park. The Formal Park, which is directly behind the Catherine Palace, was laid out during the reign of Empress Elizabeth by a team of architects supervised by Rastrelli. Characterized by the rigid symmetry of its alleys and box hedges, the garden is well maintained, although its most interesting structures - the Upper and Lower Baths and the ruined Hermitage Pavilion - are not currently open to visitors.


    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Pavlovsk Park, Sadovaya, 20, Pavlovsk, St. Petersburg 196621 Russia
