Oranienbaum State Museum Reserve

Reviewed By Tinde_K - Moscow, Russia

The Oranienbaum is one of the smaller palaces around St. Petersburg and is a good place to make a half day trip if you've already been to both Tsarskoye selo and Petergof. They made some renovations and I appreciate the multimedia additions to the Exhibitions. The state rooms are pretty.

Chinese Palace

Reviewed By C-Seven - Little Cayman

Built as a private retreat for Catherine the Great, undamaged by World War 2 and survived communism, has some beautiful rococo interiors and furnishings. I think that it is one of the few if not the only unrestored 18th century palace in St Petersberg. Well worth the visit.

Oranienbaum

Reviewed By veresch - St.Petersburg, Russia

Absolutely unique Chinese palace has for some 5 years been closed for public due to restoration - but in late December 2010 the Hermitage museum made it possible to see the most exquisite details of that palace, namely beads panels originally decorating one of the rooms. They were taken off the walls for restoration in the Hermitage workshops. Those panels were produced in 1760ies by Russian seamstresses under a guidance of a French master. It was a combination of embroidery with silk threads and opaque glass beads featuring tropical vegetation and birds. During almost 250 years they suffered from humidity and bad maintenance being just painted over. After a long and careful process of cleaning, removing alien paint and recreation of missing details the panels were revealed in their original grace.

Menshikov's Great Palace

Reviewed By CopperTeaPot - Russia

It is very pleasant, that internal interiors restorated so carefully.
It is possible to enter the palace only with excursion, but it worse money - guide gave us a lot of knowledge and impression was great.
Generally speaking, Petersburg has a lot of palaces, and it is so wonderful, that after war and restoration they still have a lot of "personal" features, which make them interesting for attentive visitor.

Peter III Palace Museum

Reviewed By CopperTeaPot - Russia

I was impressed by unique atmosphere of this palace. Small rooms, tiny staircases, ancient floor watches, small hall, which walls "covered" by dingy old paintings. And it was a miracle when floor watches suddenly began to strike ... It is place of frozen time.

Church of St. Spyridon

Reviewed By Nejdanka - St. Petersburg, Russia

Весьма нестандартный деревянный храм в форме корабля с непростой судьбой. Построен, затем снесен, снова построен, использовался как склад, дом пионеров, спортзал, чего тут только не было. И в итоге аварийное здание было разобрано...
Сейчас храм вновь построен на историческом фундаменте по имеющимся документам и чертежам. Необычная архитектура церкви притягивает взгляд, единственный купол с острыми углами и симпатичная колокольня, пожалуй, понравятся каждому. Будучи в Ломоносове, стоит посмотреть. Фотографии прилагаю

St. John's Lutheran Church

Reviewed By Nadya S - Lomonosov, Russia

During my childhood it was known as a ''Zarya'' cinema hall, and we desperately tried to sneak in without having a ticket. Today this wonderfully restored Lutheran Church, with its reconstructed bellfry, is a prominent landmark towering over the neighbouring wooden houses landscape. The parish organises amazing Concerts of choral music with free admission. It is a balm for the soul, in particular in view of this pitiful lack of accessible quality classical music venues in Lomonosov and Martyshkino.
