Gatchina Park

Today, the Gatchina Park is one of the most attractive and enigmatic parks outside St. Petersburg and listing all the places of interest is almost impossible. Consider starting the park tour from the Jordan porch, offering a splendid vista of the Silver clearing and the opposite bank of the White Lake. Go on then to see the Private Garden and the adjacent parks (the Lime Tree Garden, Upper and Lower Dutch Gardens), the Carp Bridge with a cascade, the Carp pond with a series of bridges (Corps de Garde Bridge, the Three-arch Bridge and the former Ferry Bridge) and the Admiralty. Take a boating trip to enjoy panoramic views of the Silver Lake with its numerous islands. Of the buildings from the 18th century that have been fully restored, the Birch House is probably the most interesting, as is Brenna's Pavilion of Venus. It was inspired by Paul and Maria Feodorovna's visit to Prince Conde's residence at Chantilly. And don’t forget to toss a coin in the Jordan Well for good luck or if you want to come back here again!
