History and Culture
Gatchina is one of the largest cities in the Leningrad Region. It is worth going to this city to see the historical and cultural values of Russia. Our trip will take place not only in Gatchina itself, but also in its suburbs.
First of all, we will go on a tour of the museum manor in the village of Christmas. In Gatchina itself we will visit the estate museum of P.E. Scherbov, visit one of the oldest churches dedicated to the Virgin in the Leningrad region - the Intercession Cathedral. And of course we will not forget to visit the main sights of Gatchina - Gatchina Palace and the Birch House.
