The Catherine's Palace consists of 2 wings - the Golden Suite of rooms and the Cameron Gallery, designed for Catherine the Great in the classical style. The golden rooms are adorned with gilded wood carvings decorated with crystal chandeliers and mirrors that provide the impression of a bigger space.

    What could be more impressive then seeing the beauty of Saint Petersburg from the water? The city is criss-crossed with small rivers and canals, which makes the city look like Venice or Amsterdam. Our comfortable boat will take you along the granite embankments to the main waterway of Saint Petersburg, showing you the familiar highlights like the Peter and Paul Fortress and the Spit of Basil's Island from a different perspective.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, Griboyedova Kanala Emb., 2B/A, St. Petersburg 191186 Russia
    The Church of the Resurrection, more commonly known as the Church on Spilt Blood, commemorates the Russian peacemaker Alexander II. Although he abolished serfdom he was hated by the revolutionaries, who formed different terrorist organizations with the aim of killing the ruler. Inside, the church looks fascinating, 7 000 square meters of mosaics cover the walls. They are made of melted glass and this technique looks simply spectacular and dazzling!
    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Yusupov Palace on Moika River, Emb. Reki Moiki, 94 Entrance for individual visitors and small groups from Dekabristov Street, 21, St. Petersburg 190000 Russia
    Take a tour of the palace that belonged to one of the richest families in the history of Russia. They owned 20 palaces all over the country and four in Saint Petersburg. The interiors are decorated in different styles and have preserved not only the Gala interiors, but also the living quarters where the owners of the palace slept, ate, put on makeup and got dressed. The palace was a witness of one of the most mysterious events that ever happened in Saint Petersburg - the murder of Rasputin. The Siberian monk was dangerous for the Yusupov family and was killed in the palace. Now you can see wax figures of the associates and Rasputin himself depicting the grisly murder and speculating about the secrets the palace still keeps.

    The fourth largest cathedral in the world is named after the patron saint of Peter the Great. It was designed by a French architect and until the revolution it was the primary Russian Orthodox Cathedral.

It took 40 years to build the cathedral and it is now considered to be a world heritage site.
