July 3, Sunday
Our «Meteor» boat departs from St Pete at 10 am. This is a Russian development, a quick boat on hydrowings. Our trip will last 30 min.
Again, Petergof is another place that doesn’t need advertising, it’s a «must see». Russian emperors enjoyed nature and built a few amazingly luxurious palaces in St Petersburg’s surburbs. They are as important to see as St Pete itself.
One can just imagine Russian emperors and aristocracy walking down those paths…
Enjoying the chill coming from the fountains on a hot summery day…
Or hiding from that sun in the amazing Grottos…
As always, there is more to see in this place 🙂 But you will have to trust my choice 🙂 Our route will include the Palace, Lower Park and Grottos, which are the most interesting places in my humble opinion 🙂
We will make a break for lunch and head back into St Pete with our Mereor boat at around 17.30h-18h
Rest at the Hotel/ Change and/ or heading straight for dinner at one of St Pete’s numerous good restaurants.
4 July , Monday
9 am departure from the hotel, 1h to drive to the town of Pushkin previously known as «Tsarskoe selo» (the Traz’s village)
This amazing little place hosts Catherine’s Palace with Amber Chamber that doesn’t need advertising! 🙂 It’s a true gem!
10.00-12.30h Tour of the Palace and the park, which is especially beautiful in summer.
13.00-14.30h Having visited the Palace and the park we will head for lunch to a restaurant with good ambience built in Russian «Izba» (traditional house style)
back in St Pete
Several hours of free time before the train takes you back to Moscow 🙂
Good bye St Pete, thanks for the great adventures that will stay in our hearts! 🙂
