Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Wooden architecture and palatial luxury

Not just a romantic trip, but a mini-trip through time! The day will start with a visit to Bogoslovka manor, which presents the most interesting examples of Russian wooden architecture, including a temple resembling the architectural ensemble of Kizhi. Afterwards you will take a walk in Pavlovsky Park and Maryino Manor, and finish the day with a dinner at the Beep Castle.

Saint Petersburg

Церковь во имя Покрова Пресвятой Богородицы

The wooden church, reminiscent of the architectural ensemble in Kizhi, is a reconstructed copy of the 22-headed wooden church of the same name, which was located in Vytegorsky pogost in the Vologda region until 1963. The miracle of wooden architecture is located on the territory of the Theological Park, very close to St. Petersburg. The concept of the park is unique: the creators have placed in one place the restored masterpieces of wooden architecture of the North of Russia. Here you can see museum exhibits, visit the existing temple, and of course, find harmony and peace.

Pavlovsk Park (Павловский парк)

Pavlovsk museum-reserve is the perfect place for a romantic stroll. If you've never visited the Pavlovsk Palace on a guided tour, do it today: take a tour of the chambers of Empress Maria Fyodorovna, or check out the costume museum, which displays elegant and luxurious items of the tsars' wardrobe. And if you like the outdoors, take a stroll through the alleys of the park and see the most beautiful architectural pavilions. You can also go for a ride in a horse-drawn carriage, or spend time at the skating rink or down the slide.
