If you do not know what is Pushkin's golden autumn - go to Jelagin island in fall. The park, ponds and canals, colour of the trees - this is extraordinary. There is also a glass museum on the island which is worth to visit.

Wonderful island, quiet but not boring. There are squirrels that you can feed. We just had a walk and then had a small picknik and played cards. It was a great day. The only downside was that at one day there were so many people...More

As Saint Petersburg can be a busy, crowded and noisy place, a little trip over to Elagin Island is a worthwhile break from the hectic activity of city life. Take the purple line on the Metro to Krestovsky Ostrov, and then walk to the main...More
