We begin our tour with a transfer to 35 km southeast of St. Petersburg and walk through the famous Peterhof fountain park. The Peterhof complex consists of a set of palaces and gardens. It was not only declared UNESCO World Heritage site but also bears the proud title of one of the ‘Russia’s Seven Wonders’. The shining water of more than a hundred fountains of various forms and styles running all the time, canals, terraces, gilded statues, mansions, flowers – all these makes the visit to the park unforgettable.

2. Metro tour
The subway in Soviet times was considered to be the Palace of the People and was to be decorated as such. That is why each one of the stations in the Saint Petersburg Metro is a unique and stunning work of art – decorated with marble, granite, high reliefs, huge lamps and each one has its own style. During the tour, you will see the most beautiful stations and learn about the history of the subway.

3. Visiting Paul’s Palace
After a walk in the Peterhof park, you will travel to the city called Pavlovsk and visit the Paul’s Palace. It was built in the second half of the 18th century in the classical style and belonged to the son of Catherine II, the Great, Paul I. It is one of the few palaces that still have a feeling of a private home and reflect the taste and character of their owners. During the visit, you will see paintings, porcelains, furniture and decorative art objects made by Maria Fiodorovna, the second wife of Tsar Paul I.
