Pavlovsk palace tour

from $40.00

A private  Pavlovsk palace tour 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 Charles Cameron designed an elegant palace for him. Pavlovsk palace is  more “off the beaten track” than the famous Catherine palace in  Tsarskoe Selo or the Grand palace in Peterhof, but no less interesting.

 During the tour of Pavlovsk you will  see the elegant and lavishly decorated rooms of the palace and  will enjoy a walk in the gardens. You will learn a lot about Paul, one of the most mysterious and controversial Russian emperors.

Pavlovsk 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 tour to Pavlovsk  you’ll also get an idea of everyday  local life. Pavlovsk can be reached by public transport or by private car. It’s also possible to combine private Pavlovsk palace tour with a visit to the Catherine palace  as they are a short drive from each other. In that case we’ll use  a private car.

Advantages of our Pavlovsk palace tour:

1. If you visit Pavlovsk only, it’s possible to choose between a private car and public transport that is MUCH cheaper compared to a private car,
2. The tour includes the palace interiors (gala rooms) and a walk in the park,
3. You can combine the tour of Pavlovsk with a visit to the Catherine palace.

Catherine palace and Pavlovsk tour:

A full-day tour of the Catherine palace and Pavlovsk is a brilliant opportunity to see two totally different palaces in one day. The Catherine palace is grand and splendid baroque-style stracture that will impress you with the abundance of gold, diverse rooms and the famous Amber room. The Pavlovsk palace is less well-known, but just as elegant – it has magnificent neoclassical interiors and a more homely atmosphere. It’s a full day tour by private car. The Catherine palace schedules specific entry time, so the schedule of the tour depends on that, but usually the tour program looks more or less like:

09:30 – meeting at the hotel, departure for the Catherine palace
10:30 – 12:30 – tour of the Catherine palace and a walk in the gardens
12:30 – 13:30 – lunch break if needed (payed extra)
13:30 – 13:45 – driving to Pavlovsk
14:00 – 15:30 – tour of the palace in Pavlovsk and a walk in the garden
15:30 – 16:30 – return to St Petersburg
