Qué harás

On this trip, we will visit Catherine’s Palace and see its well-known gem, the Amber Room, steeped in mystery and the Grand Hall famous for its 18th century balls. The tradition of receptions and cultural events is kept alive to this day. The palace rooms are the pride of Pushkin!

As a freelance tour guide at the palace, I have learned a lot from the colleagues who are in charge of the museum collections. As a local citizen, with my grandmother’s help, I have collected first-hand information from the interviews I conducted with veterans who lived in Pushkin during the occupation.

As with all of my tours there will be historical information, but the focus is on the everyday life, the food and the stories shared during the tsar's reign and Soviet times.

The feel of the place just wouldn' be complete without a stroll in the park and viewing its unique pavilions.

We will spend about 1 h 15 mins in the museum and about 1 hour in the parks.

After the official part of the tour has finished we usually go to taste the best borsch (traditional soup). This is a unique one-dish cafe and at the end of the meal you get to decide how much you would pay for the soup.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE TIME OF THE TOUR MIGHT CHANGE DEPENDING ON THE AVAILABILITY OF MUSEUM TICKETS. TIME WILL BE CONFIRMED A WEEK BEFORE THE TOUR AT LATEST.

  • Identidad verificada
I am outdoorsy who has lived in this area for over 25 years. Several generations of my family has lived in St.Petersburg but like most travellers I have spent some of my life abroad.

I am an official licensed guide. In addition to that, I have trained and worked at the Catherine's Palace as a freelance tour guide. Formal training aside my real passion is to collect the stories and share at the tour in combination with must-see sites, local trails and food tasting.

This tour is only available in English. Russian by birth I am married to an Englishman. We live in Pushkin and work in St.Petersburg. To broaden our horizons every other week during the low season we pick a new place or theatre performance and become the tourists in our own city. Curiosity is the key in my life and profession!
