   Tour description (the total duration 19 hours)

This is universal tour, as it is suitable all year round.
 
It differs from the 2-day Deluxe tour (May-October) in that it does not include the boat trip. A visit to the Peterhof Park is replaced by a visit to the Peterhof Grand Palace in the period October-April.  It does not include a visit to Yusupov Palace and takes two hours less. Therefore, its cost is lower.

In addition, you can order some evening program. We offer Folklore Show. The show starts at 9, the program makes you feel the whole depth of the Russian soul. It can be your own wish, just let us know:  j-travel-spb.ru/#Evening-Events

 

The first tour day (duration 11 hours)
 
You go to Tsars' Village (Pushkin Town). Officially, it is one of the districts of St. Petersburg. The town got its name in honor of the great poet Alexander Pushkin. 
 
On the way a visit (optional) to some of unusual subway stations, that are nicknamed the Underground Palaces, take a short ride.
 
In Pushkin Town:
A visit to the summer residence of the Russian tsars - Catherine Palace in the Russian baroque style, which is quite impressive with its size. It was completed during the reign of Empress Elizabeth (daughter of Peter I) in 1756 and named after her mother – Catherine I. The Palace is famous for the Amber Room. The Prussian king Friedrich I presented 22 amber panels to Peter I in 1716.
After the Palace walk through the French regular Catherine Park.
 
From Pushkin Town you go to Peterhof - capital of fountains. The town also belongs to one of the districts of St. Petersburg. Distance between these two towns - 37 km.
In Peterhof:
A visit to the Peterhof Fountain Park and walk through the gardens and fountains, which are called “Russian Versailles”. Beautiful fountains were created on the order of Peter the Great in imitation of the French fountains of Versailles. More than 150 fountains and cascades are located in the Peterhof Park.
(For the period October-April we offer a visit to the Peterhof Grand Palace. The Palace was designet by the famous Italian architect Rastrelli for Elizabeth I. The interior is decorated with gilded carving. 
After visiting the palace, you will see the picturesque park with symmetrical paths that lead to different pavilions and palaces. Unfortunately, the famous park fountains do not play in winter).
 
Then you drive back to St. Petersburg.

Finally a visit to the Faberge Museum. It has the largest collection of Faberge Eggs in the world and the luxurious interiors of the Shuvalovsky Palace.

 The second tour day (duration 8 hours)

The tour starts with a visit to the Peter and Paul Fortress, the first structure of St.- Petersburg. The foundation stone was laid by Peter I himself on May 16, 1703. Then a visit to the Peter and Paul Cathedral, the burial place of Russian tsars from Peter I to the last RussianTsar Nicholas I and his family. Its golden spire is the symbol of the modern city. The cathedral was built right on the territory of the fortress.

Then a visit to the Savior on Spilled Blood (the Church of Redemption). A place where the Russian Tsar Alexander II was mortally wounded and his blood was spilled. Later his son Alexander III ordered to build this unusual church in honor of Alexander II. It is beautifully decorated with mosaics.

Last visit before lunch to St. Isaac's Cathedral, which is the fourth tallest cupola construction of the world. Famous French architect Montferrand designed this magnificent church. It took 40 years to build. Since 1858 the church used to be the principal cathedral of St.-Petersburg until the Revolution. In 1931 it was converted to museum.

Finally a visit to the Hermitage Museum, which is the largest museum of art in Russia. It numbers more than 3 million works of art, representing different countries, people and ages. The museum consists of 5 buildings connected by passages (The Winter Palace, the Little Hermitage, the Old Hermitage, the New Hermitage, the Hermitage Theater). You go through the passages to see all the buildings. Have a look at some of gala rooms of the Winter Palace, works of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael's Loggias and much more.

Please note! Works of impressionists and post- impressionists are not included in the tour. This exhibition is located in a separate building and takes 1.5 hour. 

  

We wish you interesting and unforgettable experience!
