Pavlovsk

  (+7) 812 452 15 36 25 Sep 2017

Subtle, romantic, relaxing and quiet. All perfect words to describe Pavlovsk. Only 27km from the big city, it feels like a world away. The small town hosts the fascinating Pavlovsk Palace, encompassed by a huge 1,500 English-style acre park. Tall trees, winding streams and endless paths scattered with classical statues and flanked by benches make for many a secluded spot. If you have active children who need a place to blow off some steam, pack a picnic and make an afternoon of it. The enchanting Pavlovsk Palace, with its magnificent neoclassical interior, is a feast for the eyes. The country residence of the Imperial family boasts beautiful architecture and captivating history. Certainly not as grand as Peterhof, but much less touristy, Pavlovsk is a great place to get away from it all.

Getting there: From Kupchino metro station take marshrutka 286, 545A and 521; from Moskovskaya metro station marshrutka 299 and 545. From Vitebsky station or Kupchino metro station take a local train to Pavlovsk station (journey time 35 minutes) which is just next to the entrance to the Pavlovsk park.
