St Petersburg city guide

St Petersburg - Day Trips from St Petersburg (Chapter)

7th Edition Mar 2015

This is the Day Trips from St Petersburg chapter from Lonely Planet's St Petersburg guidebook.

Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from St Petersburg - and they can all be completed in a day. Must-sees include Tsarskoe Selo's Catherine Palace and Peterhof's Grand Palace.

  • The most popular day trip from St Petersburg is to Peter the Great's spectacular summer palace and grounds in Peterhof, on the Gulf of Finland, easily reached by hydrofoil from outside the Hermitage.
  • Pushkin and Pavlovsk – with two beautiful palaces and grounds next door to one another, this is a great day trip to see the summer palaces of Catherine the Great and Tsar Paul I.
  • The leafy park at Gatchina is one of the wildest and most beautiful of all the tsarist palace grounds, while the huge palace itself is a fascinating place to explore, even boasting an underground tunnel.
  • In Oranienbaum is Prince Menshikov's vast estate, which has some truly lovely gardens and is a great place to wander, especially since a recent renovation has brought the Great Palace back to its former glory.

Coverage includes: Peterhof, Pushkin & Pavlovsk, Gatchina and Oranienbaum.
