Pushkin



Evocative of the rosy peaks and grey troughs of the Romanovs, the summer palaces at Tsarskoe Selo (renamed Pushkin) were created for Empress Elizabeth and Catherine the Great and lie 25 kilometres south of St Petersburg.

The baroque Catherine Palace facade features golden domes and blue and white detailing, while the interior positively gleams and glitters with mirrors, chandeliers and tumescent cherubs. Just north of the Catherine Palace is the classical Alexander Palace. A favourite haunt of Nicholas and Alexandra, it ironically became their prison when they were put under house arrest before being shunted off to Yekaterinburg.

Within easy reach of the city is the Pushkin palace which is well worth a visit. You can take the train, subway or bus which go regularly throughout the day. Set aside a day for this visit so that you have enough time to see both the town, palace and the beautiful grounds.
