Having strolled the Park of Peterhof, take your seat in a comfortable car/minivan and leave for the city of Pushkin. You will visit the summer favorite estate of Catherine the Great called the Tsars Village (Tsarskoye Selo in Russian). You will be guided through the luxurious gala salons of Catherines Palace including the Hall of Lights or the Hall of Mirrors widely recognized for being used in a Disney cartoon Anastasia.
