October 15 – May 1: replaced by a tour of the Peterhof Grand Palace
The subway in Soviet times was considered to be the Palace of the People and was to be decorated as such. That is why each one of the stations in the Saint Petersburg Metro is a unique and stunning work of art – decorated with marble, granite, high reliefs, huge lamps and each one has its own style. During the tour, you will see the most beautiful stations and learn about the history of the subway.
After a walk in the Peterhof park, you will travel to the city called Pavlovsk and visit the Paul’s Palace. It was built in the second half of the 18th century in the classical style and belonged to the son of Catherine II, the Great, Paul I. It is one of the few palaces that still have a feeling of a private home and reflect the taste and character of their owners. During the visit, you will see paintings, porcelains, furniture and decorative art objects made by Maria Fiodorovna, the second wife of Tsar Paul I.
