DAY 3

Grand Peterhof Palace, Yusupov Palace

Today you will start with a trip to Peterhof, located on the Gulf of Finland coast and visit one of the most beautiful Imperial Palaces: Grand Peterhof Palace. The Grand Palace in Peterhof was designed to be the centerpiece of Peter the Great's "Russian Versaille". The Grand Palace is as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, the finest Russian and West European architects worked on the facades and the interior decor. Today the Grand Palace is a unique museum of history and art. During the tour of the palace you will see lavish and sumptuous palace interiors: incredibly ornate Grand Staircase, richly gilded Ballroom, splendid Throne Room featuring particularly fine parquet floor, Oriental Chinese Rooms, the Picture Gallery with 368 paintings by Pietro Antonio Rotari, royal family’s private quarters furnished in grand 19th century style, charmingly simple Oak Study of Peter the Great decorated with carved panels by Nicolas Pineau and the Imperial bedchamber. A trip to Peterhof will be followed by the visit to the magnificent Yusupov Palace - one of the two surviving St. Petersburg residences of the monumentally wealthy Yusupov family. The palace is perhaps most famous as the scene of the assassination of Grigory Rasputin. It is also one of the few aristocratic homes in the city to have retained many of its original interiors. The Yusupov Palace is a unique 18th-20th century architectural ensemble and a cultural and heritage site of federal significance acclaimed as the "Encyclopedia" of St. Petersburg aristocratic interior. The palace features authentic State rooms, Art Gallery halls, a miniature Home Theater and the Yusupovs family luxurious Living quarters that radiate warmth and charm of their former owners even today.

Järjestelyt olivat erinomaiset ja kaikki toimi loistavasti. Opas oli aivan huipputapaus ja tiesi tolkuttoman paljon asioista ja historiasta. Olisimmepa vaan pystyneet ottamaan edes murto-osan siitä tiedosta, jota hänellä oli. Saimme hyvän yleiskuvan Pietarista, sen historiasta ja aarteista. Eli suuret kiitokset erinomaisesti organisoidusta matkasta ja oppaalle erityiskiitos! Read more

We are back home in Delhi and would take this opportunity to thank you so much for a warm reception and your gracious hospitality on our recent Russia tour. Without your advice and constant attention to detail, we would not have enjoyed and learned ourselves nearly so much about your beautiful country. You were so considerate by helping us make the best use of our limited time to see the country and learn more of the Russian culture. Thank you again for such an enjoyable time in your country. You can be sure the communities and families in our country will hear of your country and the wonderful hospitality. Read more

Jeg synes du skal vide, at vi har haft en fantastisk ferie i Sankt Petersborg. Hotellet lå et godt sted, havde gode store værelser og fin morgenmad. Vores guide Tanja var altid til tiden, godt forberedt og meget vidende og samtidig rigtig rar. Vores største positive overraskelse var dog almindelige russers hjælpsomhed og venlighed, som vi blev mødt af dagligt på gader og i metroen. Alt i alt en stor oplevelse i en skøn by, hvor vi slet ikke kunne nå alt det, vi havde sat os for. Det bliver forhåbentlig en anden gang. Tusind tak for en fantastisk ferie fra os alle 4. Read more
