Pavlovsk Palace (Pavlovskiy Dvorets) Tours and Activities

star-5
74 Reviews

Built in 1777 under commission of Catherine the Great and featuring the works of architects like Charles Cameron, Jacomo Quarengi and Carlo Rossi, the stately Pavlovsk Palace (Pavlovskiy Dvorets) was a gift from the Empress to her son, the future Emperor Paul I, to mark the birth of her first grandson. A magnificent neoclassical complex set in an idyllic 1,500-acre estate, the palace is surrounded by landscaped parks and woodlands, and served as the summer residence for the Emperor and his wife, Maria Feodorovna, until his untimely death in 1801.

Today, the painstakingly restored palace is open to the public and provides an intimate glimpse into the life of one of Russia’s most enigmatic rulers. Visitors can peek into the chambers of Maria Feodorovna, where her personal items are still on display; explore the state rooms, decorated with an impressive collection of furnishings, fine china and paintings; and admire highlights like the lavish Throne Room, the grand Dining Hall and Paul’s Library, home to a series of tapestries gifted to the couple by Louis XVI.

Pavlovsk with Russian Troika horse riding – winter tour

Pavlovsk with Russian Troika horse riding – winter tour

star-4.5

Winter and snow make St. Petersburg even more beautiful in some respects. This also applies to the suburbs which can offer some special entertainments for the cold season. That is why we invite you to Pavlovsk - the last royal summer residence. Here you will visit the beautiful Russian classicism style palace and have a 30 minutes Russian Troika horse riding along the wonderful park. And that's probably going to be the highlight of the entire tour as you are going to get the most exciting impressions with this ride. Troika appeared and got its name about 200 years ago. It is the only harnessing in the world with horses racing in different gait. The shaft horse in the center must have a quick and efficient trot, and the trace horses on both sides need to gallop. Herewith a very high speed of 45-50 km/h can be developed. The guide will accompany you in the sleigh and show the most interesting constructions and landscape peculiarities.

5 day grand St.Petersburg tour

5 day grand St.Petersburg tour

This is a comprehensive tour of St.Petersburg for intellectually curious, and though it is not a strict term for me, please do not ask me if you just like small talk, I might not have particular social graces, but if you are really interested in Russian history, I am your man. Of course it doesn't matter if you wanna go deep into it, or just do highlights and scratch the surface, each tour would be tailored to your particular demands even on the go, but you have to give me a little credit and need at least 5 days to do it justice. And the more time you give me, the more interesting and fascinating it becomes for you. We are not gonna rush around, cramming information, but take it gradually so by the end of it you would be able to familiarize yourself with Russian history and learn not just who, when and for how much but why. I am very flexible with no downtime, and unlike other guides offer itineraries that not set in stone, so you can choose to see things that amaze or educate.
