St. Petersburg Winter Fairy Tale and Pavlovsk Palace Tour

    What to Expect
    Your private, fully licensed guide and professional driver will meet you at your St. Petersburg hotel or near St. Petersburg cruise port.

    Settle into your air-conditioned vehicle and set off on a city tour to visit St. Petersburg’s most magical and mysterious places, and soak up the Russian winter fairy tale atmosphere.

    Take photos of the city’s most famous, snow-frosted sights and icy canals and rivers, and if it's during the festive season, admire the Christmas decorations.

    At around midday, stop to enjoy a traditional Russian lunch (own expense), and then travel into the suburbs to Pavlovsk to visit the Pavlovsk Palace and Park.  This classical, late 18th-century palace was constructed 16.7 miles (27 kilometers) from the city as a summer residence for Tsar Paul I and his family, and is one of the few royal houses that still retain the cozy and personal atmosphere of its one-time imperial residents.

    Framing the palace is the beautiful, 1,482-acre (600-hectare) Pavlovsk Park. One of Europe’s largest parks and considered a perfect example of romantic, early 19th-century landscaping, it more than deserves its description as ‘music for the eyes.’

    Your trip finishes with a drop-off at your hotel or the cruise port.
