Description

Located in the suburbs of St Petersburg, Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin) represents the best of Russian royal heritage. Its solemn tranquillity and grandeur are utterly hypnotising.

The original owners were women: Catherine I – wife of Peter I, Elisabeth I – their daughter, and Catherine II. After inheriting Tsarskoe Selo, Elizabeth I treated it with special affection and named the palace she commissioned to be built after her mother: Catherine Palace.

Catherine Palace is an impressive baroque reconstruction featuring rooms decorated with gold and mirrors. During your visit, you’ll have a unique opportunity to see the breathtaking Amber Room.

Excellent Tour!
This was a small group tour (in fact it was only us and an additional person) of Pushkin over 5-6 hours. We had Olga as our guide and she was brilliant. She gave the right level of information and told us stories to keep us entertained. Highly recommended!

Hassle free way to see the Hermitage on your own
We had been to the Hermitage before, but since our friends went on a guided tour with the same conpany, we opted for the skip-the-line tickets. And boy, were we happy, seeing the humongous line outside the Winter Palace. We were taken in with the guided tour group and then we continued on our own.
A very knowledgeable guide
Olga was extremely professional and posssesed a wealth of knowledge which she was able to impart with us throughout the tour. I couldn't have done the visit so efficiently if i were alone. Because she knew not only about art and architecture, she was also extremely adept at guiding us in the most efficient way by taking us to less crowded area first and being flexible. There was a family with an infant who showed up late, but she handleded it graciously. The only "problem" was the extra time it took to get inside, as there seemed have confusion as to which group gets to go first. To me it was no such big deal, but some people might have become impatient. Overall, I'm very satisfied. Thank you Olga!
Loved the show
Nice folklore show. Great dancers and singers. The only problem is the hall. You should come early and get the first seats of you want to see it all
