    This trip is for you if you want to feel the atmosphere of Saint-Petersburg of the early 19th century, the time of Alexander Pushkin, the greatest Russian poet who studied at the lycée here. In Tsarskoye selo you can forget for a while that it's 21th century and breathe the air of old times walking in the parks and visiting the palaces built by Catherine I (Peter the Great's second wife) and Elizabeth (their daughter).

    We will meet at the metro station "Moskovskaya" and take a bus which goes directly to Tsarskoye Selo. There first we will visit the gem of Tsarskoye Selo — Catherine Palace, the world's longest palace, which baroque, festive features come from architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli (who later designed Saint-Petersburg's Winter Palace) and visit the palace's masterpiece — the Amber room and other impressive halls and rooms. Then we will have time to explore the Catherine and Alexander parks, which are both divided in symmetrically designed and English landscape parks. There we will see a lot of wonderful things, as Marble Bridge, Grot pavilion, Hermitage pavilion, Chinese village and others. I am sure we will have a wonderful day exploring these parks and talking. And if you are interested, we can visit Alexander palace, which is much smaller than Catherine palace but attractive one as well. Also during the trip when we feel hungry we can go somewhere to have lunch, for example, at Hutorok restaurant, where you can try Russian specialities.

    Actually I have a diploma of tour guide of Saint-Petersburg so I promise you will have a nice excursion. And I am really interested in meeting new people so our walk won't look officially. Also I have an experience in taking photos and if you have a photo-camera I can make some photos of you from this trip.
