After short exploring the Northern capital was time to visit one of the small suburbs of Saint-Petersburg. And we couldn’t miss an opportunity to get back to Pushkin. Pushkin – is a small (for Russia) city near Saint-Petersburg. At first there located an imperial country residence and it became a city only at the beginning of the 19th century. For me Pushkin was always associated with the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum, because its most famous graduate was a great Russian poet and writer Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin. At the present day this place attracts tourists from all over the world with delightful palace and subtle atmosphere.
Last time we spent here the whole day with Dasha and have been lost in the wood. So this time we decided to explore the opposite side of the emperor park and came to the magnificent Catherine park, which is right behind the palace. That’s where we were overtaken by a summer shower. Wet, a little frozen and hungry we had to finish our exploration. But I believe I will get the third chance to be here again someday.
