Route and content of the tour

What can you expect?

The tour begins at the Pavlovsk station where you can easily get to either by car or by public transport, the best choice being the commuter train from the Vitebsky railway station, an outstanding art deco monument in itself. The ride by train takes around 30 minutes.

Our guide will meet you at the station in Pavlovsk.

Unfortunately not preserved, the historic Pavlovsk station was known as Russia’s first ever symphonic venue that once witnessed a concert conducted by Johann Strauss II. Its location is marked by a memorial stone in the park.

In addition to a walk in the park, you will see interiors of the Grand Palace, including Paul’s collection of watches that perfectly describes the palace’s enigmatic owner. Our guide will also tell you many legends and true stories from the lives of the palace’s former residents.

In the park, you will find cafes to have a comfortable lunch. Boat rental services are available in the summer.

Pavlovsk Palace is closed for visiting on Mondays.
