History and Culture🎅 Winter Trips
To the south of St. Petersburg there are many cultural and historical sites. Here, manors and palaces, defensive and church buildings were built during the time of the Russian Empire. Take an informative three-day trip to see the most interesting of them. Start with Gatchina, then appreciate the aesthetics of famous artists' and writers' estates, and the modesty of peasant life. Touch antiquities at Ivangorod and Koporsk fortresses and return to the city along the picturesque coastline of the Gulf of Finland.
  • Note that in order to enter Ivangorod Fortress you should make a request for a visit at least four days in advance. How to do this, you can learn in official Vkontakte group. Ivangorod is part of the border zone, so you must have a passport and a pass issued in advance!
