Wedding route 'Prince and Princess'

Nothing can decorate that very day like the opportunity to be in a European fairy tale and feel like a prince and a princess.

St. Petersburg more than any other city in Russia can give you the feeling of being in a fabulous atmosphere, and can make you feel like a real prince and princess. For 300 years of reign, the imperial dynasty of the Romanovs left a truly rich heritage for descendants: magnificent palaces, immense squares, elegant gardens. Due to its status of the imperial city, St. Petersburg received facades of buildings decorated with expensive stone, generously decorated with golden domes and spires, as well as unique interiors of noble mansions. We suggest you go to a wedding photo tour to the places that will reflect the luxury of scenery and convey the atmosphere of a magnificent celebration.

The Yusupov Palace

The Yusupov Palace

Saint Petersburg, nab. reki Moiki, 94

Newlyweds will rightly appreciate the variety of the Yusupov Palace interiors. Its owners possessed the subtlest taste and managed to combine brilliance and grace in the interior decorations. The first stop is the grand staircase of Carrara marble, covered with scarlet carpet. On the marble steps, guests find themselves in the endless suite of halls decorated with crystal chandelier, painted shades, typeset parquet, antique tapestries of the 18th-19th centuries and carved fireplaces. The Moorish living room with Arabic script and decorative patterns looks especially impressive. The climax of the walk will be a photo-stop in the home theatre, very similar to the imperial with its golden decoration and heavy velvet curtain, but much cosier.
