We invite you to Oranienbaum - residence of the Royal family, included in the list of UNESCO monuments, which is located on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland just in 40 km from St. Petersburg!


Oranienbaum is the only suburb which didn't undergo destruction by fascist aggressors during World War II. Damaged, but not destroyed in the years of war, palaces museums and parks of the city of Lomonosov have kept decorative furniture of the 18th century in all the originality. Therefore they are of huge art value as the original architectural monuments and can familiarize us with the history and art of the past.


In the first part of our programm we will visit main interior halls of The Grand Menshikov palace, remarkable construction which was built at the beginning of the 18th century and kept the beauty till these days. The Grand Menshikov palace, is the oldest construction of Oranienbaum. In its courtyard and its surroundings, one can plainly feel the spirit of that time, the epoch of transformation and battling for the entrance to the Baltic sea. It is situated almost at the water level of the gulf, connected with the sea, directed to it, as if embodying the main goal of all the work of Peter I's time - the affirmation of Russia on the coast of the freed sea.


During our tour we will also visit the Picture Palace, which was built initially for the purpose of exhibiting a huge collection of paintings which belonged to Peter III and consisted of 300 paintings. It houses the library, curiosities, and even a small Opera venue, which became the local center of the court musical life.


Then you will walk through a magnificent landscape Park of Oranienbaum residence. The Upper Park, to the south-west of the Grand Menshikov Palace is the most beautiful section of the estate, with varied woodland interlaced with canals, bridges and ponds. Laid out in the reign of Catherine the Great by Joseph Bush, the rolling parkland contains the Chinese palace & the Antonio Rinaldi's equally fascinating Sliding Hill, a three-storey, blue-and-white baroque pavilion that was once the starting point for a 500m "rollercoaster" using sledges or wheeled carts. Like the fabulous palaces at Oranienbaum, the park around them is in need of a great deal of tender, loving cate to restore it to its former glories. While some parts of the varied parkland can still give a fair impression of the carefully planned landscaping carried out in the reign of Catherine the Great, others are so overgrown as to have become just wilderness.
