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.
