Pavlovsk palace tour

Pavlovsk palace in summerA private tour of Pavlovsk allows you to enjoy the elegant beauty of the former summer residence of emperor Paul, the only son of Catherine the Great. In 1777 Catherine gave this land to her son  and in 1780-s a summer palace for him was constructed here to the design by Charles Cameron. Pavlovsk palace is  more “off the beaten track” than the famous Catherine palace in  Tsarskoe Selo or the Grand palace of Peterhof, but no less interesting.

The  palace in Pavlovsk is built in neoclassical style and in my personal opinion it has one of the best interiors. During this tour you will  not only see the elegant and lavishly decorated rooms and  enjoy a walk in the gardens, but will also learn a lot about Paul, one of the most mysterious and controversial Russian emperors.

Pavlovsk park in summerPavlovsk park is very popular among citizens who come there all year round, to ski or sledge in winter and to walk and take pictures in summer, so during  the excursion to Pavlovsk  you’ll also get an idea of everyday  local life. Pavlovsk can be reached by public transport, and I honestly recommend it as it makes the tour cheaper and more flexible with time. It’s also possible to combine private tour of Pavlovsk with a visit to the Catherine palace in Pushkin. In that case you’ll have a private car.

Advantages of our tour:

1. If you visit Pavlovsk only, it’s possible to choose between a private car and public transport that is MUCH cheaper.
2. The tour includes the palace interiors (gala rooms) and a walk in the park
3. Professional and friendly local licenced guide
