We decided to start the day in a not the most refined, but still pleasant cafe called Bistro Pollo. Here you can quickly and deliciously prepare the usual dishes and snacks, eat pizza, sausages with cheese and salads.
Between the villages of Andrianovo and Tarasovo there is an incredibly interesting and beautiful historical site - Maryino Estate. It has a rich and very interesting history, and its buildings fascinate with their elegant appearance, as well as tourists are invited to take a horse riding tour throughout the territory. Entrance is paid, but a visit is worth it.
Next stop for us is another famous manor house - Christmas. Here visitors are invited to learn more about the life of the Russian nobility, as well as the biography of Russian writer Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov, who became the last private owner of this cozy nest.
After a long excursion we wanted to eat, so on the way back to St. Petersburg we decided to make a small stop in a cozy cafe Oredezh. The menu consists mainly of Italian as well as Japanese cuisine, a large choice of sushi, rolls, pizza and light zkauskas.
One of the most significant places of rest in the Leningrad region can safely be called the Palace Park. Its picturesque landscape is a real work of art, there are many different art objects in the whole territory, in its waters stretches a whole pleiad of islands connected to each other by small bridges, also in summer you can order a walk on the lake.
Another great place to go for a walk in Gatchina is the Priory Park. The central attraction here is the palace of the same name, which in many respects is called a world architectural masterpiece. Perhaps its main feature is the choice of construction material: its walls are entirely made of earth, and this has not affected its appearance in the slightest.
We had dinner at "Nordic" restaurant. The menu includes Scandinavian cuisine, many dishes of fish, seafood, and quite exotic combinations, such as ice cream with white mushrooms or cornflowers.
