Pavlovsk with Russian Troika horse riding – winter tour

Pavlovsk with Russian Troika horse riding – winter tour

star-4.5
Winter and snow make St. Petersburg even more beautiful in some respects. This also applies to the suburbs which can offer some special entertainments for the cold season. That is why we invite you to Pavlovsk - the last royal summer residence. Here you will visit the beautiful Russian classicism style palace and have a 30 minutes Russian Troika horse riding along the wonderful park. And that's probably going to be the highlight of the entire tour as you are going to get the most exciting impressions with this ride. Troika appeared and got its name about 200 years ago. It is the only harnessing in the world with horses racing in different gait. The shaft horse in the center must have a quick and efficient trot, and the trace horses on both sides need to gallop. Herewith a very high speed of 45-50 km/h can be developed. The guide will accompany you in the sleigh and show the most interesting constructions and landscape peculiarities.
