PANORAMIC DRIVE – THE GULF OF FINLAND

Country House of artist Ilya Repin, Russia

For those guests wishing to venture away from St Petersburg, without much walking, this tour is ideal.

A panoramic drive will take you from the hustle and bustle of the city and along the coast of the Gulf of Finland, which is one of the most picturesque areas outside of St Petersburg. Nobility had summer houses, Dachas, here and would spend the entire summer season in their rural homes. In the town of Repino you will have a short photo stop at the former home of well-known Russian artist Ilya Repin. Continue to Zelenogorsk for a photo stop at the Cathedral of the Icon of Our Lady of Kazan. You will have the chance to go inside and light a candle by the altar if you wish, or can choose to relax in the picturesque garden by the cathedral.

You then drive to a local restaurant for refreshments before some time at leisure. Enjoy the views of the Gulf before the return drive to St Petersburg.
