Church of the Resurrection

Reviewed By Nejdanka - St. Petersburg, Russia

Я прекрасно помню место в Шушарах, на котором сейчас гордо возвышается храм-красавец. Тут были колхозные поля, переходящие в камыши и болото. Храм построен на частные пожертвования якутских и петербургских коммерсантов (что отрадно!).
Храм получился очень достойный: высокий, нарядный, просторный, с колокольней и даже этажом для хора внутри. Здесь потрясающая акустика. Храм отлично видно с кольцевой дороги (особенно ночью, когда храм подсвечен) и Московского шоссе, и для поселка Шушары это поистине настоящий подарок.

Tsarskoye Selo State Museum Preserve

Reviewed By Sureeporn Y - Phitsanulok, Thailand

Tsarskoye Selo State Museum or Catherine Palace is one of the must-see tourist' attractions in St. Petersburg. When you go to this palace, you'll see a sculpture of Pushkin, a famous Russian writer before you reach the palace entrance. The palace give you a feminine aura and a feel of the dynasty's prosperity and grandeur. Every room is beautifully decorated with invaluable collections, mostly souvenirs from other countries. Photos are allowed in every room, except the most precious amber room. When you think of the fact that the original palace was destroyed during the war and was renovated later by the government, it could make you think how much more beautiful the palace had been before the destruction. The garden around the palace is also beautiful with green, golden and red leaves that make tourists Oohs and Aahs with the beauty of pure nature. If you happen to go to St. Petersburg - weather for work or traveling - don't forget to put the Tsaskoye Selo State Museum in you plan.

The Temple-Chapel of Xenia of St. Petersburg

Reviewed By Nejdanka - St. Petersburg, Russia

Милая и чистенькая часовня при храме Воскресения Христова в Шушарах.
Лен 15 назад на месте этой часовенки было сплошное болото с трехметровыми камышами. Сначала построили часовню Ксении Петербургской, а уж потом появился храм. Сейчас все массовые службы проходят в открытом храме, в часовне проводят только частные службы - крещение и отпевания. И конечно же, сюда приходят попросить помощи об устройстве семейного счастья у Блаженной Ксении Петербургской...

Catherine Palace and Park

Filled with 18th-century paintings and ornate rooms, this white and gold palace is surrounded by a 1400-acre park complete with Fountains, Bridges, the Agate Pavilion bathhouse and the Great Pond. The Palace also has a famous Amber Room, stolen by Nazi troops during WWII, but now recreated by Russian craftsmen.

Visiting on a cold March day, the pakland setting really complemented the Palace. Incredible to believe that it was all destroyed in 1944 and has certainly been sympathetically rebuilt and restored to a spectacular standard. Room after room of sumptious goodies and settings.

Autodrome St-Petersburg

Reviewed By Pollen25 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Отличный учебно-спортивный комплекс! Есть курсы повышения водительского мастерства, дрифта, отдельно вождение для женщин и даже для детей от 12 до 16 лет. Превосходная трасса. Все инструкторы высококлассные мастера своего дела. Можно погонять как на своем авто, так и на авто автодрома. Я пока только решилась на "гоночное такси" с профессиональным пилотом )))) Рекомендую!

Memorial Lyceum Museum

Reviewed By Oleg Y - Belgrade, Serbia

Being in Pushkin and in Tsarskoye Selo within it, we inevitably visited this very well known educational edifice in the first decade of 19th century in Russia, while reigned Alexander I Romanov.
Now it is turned in Memorial Lyceum Museum. Here, Alexander Pushkin and some other great Russians studied.
It is also called Alexander Lyceum after its founder the Emperor Alexander I. Style of building is neoclassical .
We carefully looked at all rooms and objects in them, preserved in Lyceum until our days, as for instance the school tables, chairs, the panel on the walls, sleeping rooms, the dining rooms, the vestibule, shool yard and others.
There was a strong influence of Lyceum on Pushkin and his poetry and this can be seen in his first youth poems.
Very nice and educative.

Temple of the Smolensk Icon of the Mother of God

Reviewed By Nejdanka - St. Petersburg, Russia

Церковь Иконы Божией Матери Смоленская в Пулково найти очень легко - она находится на территории Экспофорума. Наконец-то сняли строительный забор и церковь принимает прихожан. Когда-то здесь, на Пулковском кладбище (от которого ничего не осталось), стояла церковь точно такой же архитектуры, разрушенная в войну. Я видела старые фотографии - новая церковь имеет такую же кубическую форму, две парные колокольни. Архитекторы постарались восстановить историческую справедливость. Обязательно войдите внутрь - очень богатая отделка, большой позолоченный иконостас, расписные потолки. Тут и обсуждать нечего - красиво! Видимо, старались, поскольку Экспофорум нынче принимает не только местных жителей, но и международные делегации со всего мира.

Kameronova Gallery Museum

Reviewed By Oleg Y - Belgrade, Serbia

This Gallery Museum bearing the name of one scottish architect and designer, that is, Charles Cameron, is the adjacent building to the east wing of the Catherine Palace. In fact, it stands perpendicular to it.
Naturally, it has been done by this talented architect and interior designer for Catherine the Great. Very impressive is the Colonnade on the upper storey of edifice, consisting of number of slender ionic columns. From that level we've hade some beautiful views on the surrounding Gardens and Great Pond. And within this row of columns there are also the bronze busts of the great figures of antiquity.
We just admired at the very originally designed approaching stairs with two wings and the statue of Hercules at the bottom of the stairs.
Nowadays, the Gallery is used to house temporary Exhibitions.
If You have a park ticket, the admission for this Museum is free.

Alexander Park

This magnificent palace is most well known for its role during the reign of the last Tsar, Nicholas II, who, with his family, was kept here before being moved to Siberia and then murdered.

Reviewed By Oleg Y - Belgrade, Serbia

This park named after the Tsar Alexander I Romanov runs to the west of Catherine Palace and covers pretty large area of around 200 ha.
We walked here for awhile after seeing the gorgeous Catherine Palace and in the aim to settle our impressions of it in the serenity of this beautiful vast green area. The park is crisscrossed by the little rivers, brooks and very nice ponds. It started sometime in the past with New Garden, a square surrounded by the Cross Canal, which still exists in the present time and expanded beyond these limits.
In the center of one of the quarters of New Garden stand the remains of the Chinese Theatre and nearby the Grand Chinese Bridge and the Sculpture of the Chinese man in the sitting position.
Very interesting are the buildings of castle-like Arsenal Red Pavilion and White Tower. In the far north of the Alexander Park we stumbled at the very nice St. Fyodor's Imperial Cathedral. Before the Great October Revolution this church was a house church for Nicholas II and his family.
In whole this rambling we undertook in Alexander Park was very pleasant with so lot things to see.
