Pushkin and Gatchina

The south of the Leningrad region is very rich in amazingly beautiful palace and park ensembles. We suggest you go to the XIX century and admire the sophistication, taste and style of that time. Dream a little bit and imagine what your life would be like among the palace chambers. Today you will find the museum-reserve "Tsarskoe Selo", the lyceum, where Alexander Pushkin studied and made his closest friends, and the Palace Park in Gatchina.
