Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Pavlovsk State Museum, Sadovaya St 20, Pavlovsk, St. Petersburg 196621 Russia

Visitors can witness the opulent splendor of the State Bedroom with its lavishly decorated bed, painted walls and elegant chandelier. The Throne Room (formerly the Dining Room) is famous for its excellent acoustics and unique plafond (ceiling painting) by Pietro Gonzaga. The palace, although smaller and less ornate than those at Tsarskoye Selo and Peterhof, has the feel of a stylish country home, whose inhabitants you can almost imagine have just left for an afternoon of hunting in the palace park.

Much of Pavlovsk's charm is derived from its wonderful landscape park. Located along the picturesque valley of the Slavyanka River, the extensive park is dotted with small pavilions and architectural follies, including the Temple of Friendship, the Colonnade of Apollo, the pavilion of the Three Graces, the Dairy Farm and the Rose Pavilion. Johan Strauss performed with an orchestra in the building of the Musical Station in the park.
