Winter in St Petersburg park is the most mysterious period. The snow is sparkling under your feet, and the palaces look like fairy tale castles. Here is the top list of parks for your winter strolls.
here you see a lot of interesting constructions: castles, bridges and beautiful landscapes. The Great Gatchina palace is well worth a look, too.
Everyone who has been to St Petersburg, visited the famous Peterhoff. Surprisingly, the neighboring Alexandria park is not very well-known even among the locals. This is a great place for a stroll with a thermos of hot tea and a camera, as you find a lot of delicate Gothic constructions here, as well as a gorgeous view on the Gulf of Finland.
on the one hand, Pavlovsk used to be a royal residence with a palace and a huge park. On the other hand, it is less “show-off” than the nearby Tsarskoe Selo. In winter you can see old-fashioned sleighs with horses, and kids sliding down hills on the banks of Slavyanka river.
4. Alexander’s park
It is not as magnificent as the famous Catherine’s park, however, it is a very nice place for strolls on a sunny winter day. A great bonus will be the views and photos of a Gothic Capella, Cross Bridge and White Tower.
this picturesque park is divided into the Lower garden and the Upper garden, with a lot of lanes covered with snow. At times there are street fests on the ponds in the park.
