hi, am arriving in St. Petersburg on Tuesday with a group tour. the group tour doesn't cover Catherine's palace in Pushkin.
The tour company has not planned anything on the Tuesday, on the day we land. so we are pretty much by ourselves. We reach the hotel by 2:30PM. if i start at 3PM on my own and take the minibus to Pushkin, do you think it is possible to get to and get some views of Pushkin / Cathrine Park and Palace.
my second question is since the palace is closed on Tuesday... should i go there just for the park and to see the palace from outside...
The alternative to this is that i just walk around St.Petersburg and soak in the city.
please advise :)
