Tour program:

10:00 - group gathering at the entrance to the Vitebskiy railway station (the nearest metro station is "Pushkinskaya").

Vitebskiy railway station is worth special attention. For the first time in the history of Russia, in 1837, a train headed by the "Provorniy" (Ptompt) steam locomotive started to Tsarskoye Selo from here. We shall see the beautiful architecture of the building, built in 1904, walk through its halls, the walls of which have seen so many passengers and so many amazing events. A whole day is not enough to explore all its hidden places, paintings and décor elements.

11:00 - departure of the retro train from Vitebsk railway station. Along the way, the guide will tell you the story about the history of Russian Railways and throw a real railway tea party.  

11:30 - arrival at Tsarskoe Selo railway station. Tour around the station.

The rich history of the station begins in 1837. During its existence, the main building was rebuilt four times. The last reconstruction was made in 1946-1950. At the times, the Leningrad architect E. A. Levinson and engineer A. A. Grushke had a challenging task to preserve the traditions of the Palace and Manor architecture of the old city and reflect the theme of the memory of A. S. Pushkin. We shall enjoy a consistent architectural complex, which merged the traditional features of Tsarskoye Selo buildings of Pushkin times.

12:00 – bus transfer to Saint Petersburg. A fascinating quiz will be offered along the way. The stops for getting off the bus back in the city: "Moskovskaya" and "Sennaya" metro stations.
