Today we go Royal again, and travel to the famous palaces of the countryside. You will see renowned palaces of the Romanov imperial family! Pushkin/Tsarskoye Selo is the former Russian residence of the imperial family, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Top attractions include Catherine’s palace, Alexander’s palace and other buildings and parks. And we shall also have a look at—strange as it may seem—its own Chinatown.
The world-famous “Amber Room”, known as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’, is here in Catherine’s palace. Late afternoon is free to explore the city on your own.
“Thank you Discovery Russia, you’re N1! Our trip to Golden Ring Russia was intense yet flawless. Guides were excellent, so knowledgeable and passionate about their home country. The entire trip was great fun and perfectly organized. We had dinner every day in a new cool restaurant and tried interesting Russian food – delicious. Russia is a great country to visit and when you decide to taste it, do it with Discovery Russia. A trusted company I would highly recommend.”
