England and France in Russia

If you need a break from the deluge of historic churches that litter St. Petersburg but you still want to enjoy some history, visit the Mikhailovsky Castle and Gardens. Here you can enjoy some of the most stunning 18th and 19th century landscaping and architecture anywhere in Russia. Ironically, the styles overwhelmingly used here were inspired by trends that originated in France and England and put together in a uniquely Russian way by an Italian designer.

The result is a vast verdant garden surrounding no less than four royal palaces. When you tire of strolling in the lush grounds, retire to one of the many buildings that houses more than 400 000 artifacts covering virtually all of Russia's history from the 10th century to the present day.
