wild and man-made
Павловск / Pavlovsk9
Why locals love it
A busdrive will take you from the crowded and roaring city to the peaceful park, full with architectural creations of the 18th century. Just 20 minutes and you will reach one of the most beautiful suburbs of Saint-Petersburg: several big ponds with birds, three hundred year old oaks, small bridges and a gorgeous palace dedicated to Pavel the First.
Why you should visit it
Besides beautiful landscapes you can also enjoy different temporary and permanent exhibitions, see authentic clothes that belonged to the members of the imperial family in the Museum of Costumes, participate in historical lectures, ride a boat or even a horse.
It’s better to go there early in the morning (about 10 o’clock)to enjoy the absolute silence and feed the squirrels.
