THE MOST IN ONE DAY
Hermitage museum, the
Church of our Savior on Spilled Blood. You will also have a chance to admire
Peterhof park, the most splendid park ensemble of the 18th century that belonged to the Russian tsars.
Church on Spilled Blood – with multicolored onion shaped domes reminiscent of St. Basil’s Cathedral on Red Square, this Cathedral is a breathtaking sight both outside and within its walls decorated with marbles and several thousand square yards of mosaic.
Metro (Underground) ride. The stations are worth seeing for their beautifully decorated interiors. Many are adorned with crystal chandeliers, marble vestibules and beautiful frescoes.
Peterhof Park – Travel to another former summer Imperial residence. Set in magnificent parks, Peterhof is reminiscent of Versailles. The parks are dotted with countless fountains, charming pavilions and summer houses.
The diversity of the fountains in the park is surprising. From monumental ensembles like the Samson Cascade to the ever popular Joke Fountains, including one which sprays anyone who steps on a particular paving stone.
If the weather permits, we provide a complimentary
Hydrofoil trip. Hydrofoil is a safe and fast boat which rises above the surface of the water. The trip takes 45 minutes.
