One of the most lyrical and poetic summer residences of Saint-Petersburg located on the picturesque bank of the river Slavianka , Pavlovsk, combines the charm and simplicity of the countryside with the lure of a grandiose imperial palace

During the age of autocracy, the summer imperial residences such as the one in Peterhof flourished and grew more and more ostentatious, demonstrating the might of the Romanov dynasty through the sheer glamour of its palaces gardens and world-famous fountains

Among the ring of ceremonial imperial residences created around Saint-Petersburg a special place is given to Oranienbaum palatial complex which as well as Peterhof was conceived to become a symbol of Russian military glory and its safe position on the coast of the Baltic sea.

Kronshtadt is situated at the Kotlin island in the part of the gulf of Finland 29 km. from Saint-Petersburg. Being a part of Swedish territory during the Northern war Peter the Great managed to capture this island in 1704. During the Soviet times it was used as a Naval base thus it was closed to the public and only recently locals as well as tourists got a possibility to explore the authentic culture of this place

PushkinPushkin (Tsarskoe Selo)
Among all imperial summer residences of Saint-Petersburg, none is more evocative of both the heyday and the twilight of the Romanovs than the one in Pushkin ( the former Tsarskoe Selo), located only 25 kilometers south of the city.

Among all suburban imperial residences that astound the onlooker with ostentatious facades and elaborately laid out parks, Gatchina ensemble, is bound to strike you with the harmonious union of nature and architecture carefully preserved under the rule of all Russian monarchs.

VyborgThis picturesque town is situated on the Karelian Isthmus near the head of the Bay of Vyborg, 130 km to the northwest of St. Petersburg and 38 km south from Russia's border with Finland. This territory was seized by Peter the Great during the Northern War (1700-1721) but its fate was decided only in 1944 when it was finally incorporated to Leningrad. At present Vyborg with its population about 80000 citizens continues to be an important industrial producer of paper as well as an alluring tourist center.
