Catherine Palace Tour in details:

Catherine Palace Tour covers three big season changes. These changes make the palace complex unforgettable. We highly recommend taking the Catherine Palace tour in autumn and winter because there are not so many people and you will be able to see the Catherine Palace Park at its best.

Is Catherine Palace worth visiting

Absolutely! In Autumn and Winter the Catherine Palace is even more attractive than in summer. Even in bad weather, you can enjoy the history of Romanov family with a professional guide in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian. Without a haste, take pictures of cracking with fire (not always lit) fireplaces, golden halls and chandeliers.

Where else to go in St Petersburg in winter

Hermitage in Winter
Hermitage in Winter

Combine the Catherine Palace tour with the Hermitage Tour in one day and see the full history of Russian royalty.

The Peterhof Palace in winter is also breathtaking. Regardless the fact Peterhof Fountains are closed, the palace interior itself is very valuable. You will have a chance to see the Oak Library and many other rare cultural treasuries.

In the evening visit the “Feel yourself Russian” folk show. It will complete the day with a cheerful traditional celebration.

Russian Winter Tour ideas

We highly recommend taking a carriage horse ride around the Catherine or Alexander Park. It is an authentic experience for all family.

You could also add a lunch in Russian restaurant to complete the feeling of cozy Russian winter. Our partner restaurant Podvorye would be a really nice additional touch of Russian culture. It is made entirely of wood and the food is fantastic!

very informative and interesting tour!

We booked a tour with this company for our party of 5 friends in December 2018. We liked our guide so much, she was so accommodating and interesting to be with. She told us amazing stories from the Russian history. We were fascinated by the city and people who introduced their home city to us!

Half day visit to St Catherine’s Palace  

Great tour with Elena , perfect balance of information about the building art and history- all the key points to maximise enjoyment of this fabulous place without the information overload you get from some guides , emotionally intelligent - don’t think you’ll find a better guide for this city- and don’t suggest you do the major sites without a guide , you’ll miss so much !
