Catherine The Great seemed to have palaces all over the city, each of them spectacular. This is an architectural masterpiece as well as having spectacular gardens. Every room is as opulent as possible, but the main attraction is the Amber Room where all the walls are completely covered with artwork made of real Russian amber and gold. Take note that... More

If you want to feel some Pushkin atmosphere in Saint Petersburg you have to go this place. A lot of original painting, furniture and manuscripts.

Pushkin house museum and Pasternak house museum in Moscow are the two finest in Russia. Not to be missed as both are full of the history and life of these men.

We had a guide to take us around the palace and grounds she knew lots of information so we got a real taste of how it has been restored since it was looted in WW2. Its a beautiful palace inside and out.

SPB Tours included this stop with many other sites on the (3) day package. The tour guide, provided by SPB Tours made this Museum come alive. Through her visual story telling the statutes positioned in the museum felt real.

Does not take very long to go through. Set up sort of like a wax museum and the story was very interesting.Basement and cellar were the most fun. I liked it!

The museum is in the apartment where Pushkin lived at the end of his live. He was mortally wounded in a duel and died in the apartment. An audio guide is recommended, and photographs aren't permitted. They do an excellent job of providing the history surrounding this important Russian poet. It takes about an hour to tour the exhibits.

This apartment has a few rooms with original Pushkin furniture and other items.Main theme is Pushkin's death after the duel.Numbers admitted limited so would be worth pre-booking at busy times.Rather pricey admission charge considering size of property.

The most famous icon in the world by most scholars is Rublev's Old Testament Trinity. This is only one of the outstanding icons and magnificent pieces of art that can be found in one of the most famous museums in the world.

This is the house of the great Russian Poet Alexander Pushkun. It is very simple and onscure. This was pointed out the the doorman of my Hotel Kempinski. Behind the door is an open space. and You can visit the museum where there is his memorabilia up stairs.
