Walk around Alexander Park

Alexander Park located directly to the west of the Catherine Palace covers around 200 hectares. The park begins with what is left of the New Garden, a square encompassed by the Cross Canal and divided into four smaller squares, each with a complex geometrical layout.

Formerly an imperial hunting area, this large park turned into a magnificent ensemble thanks to the care of the owners of Tsarskoye Selo, with Chinese-style arcades of Catherine II’s and Gothic Revival structures from the time of Alexander I.

This slightly overgrown 200-hectare park houses the Alexander Palace, a favorite retreat for Nicholas II and family, the last of the Romanov line.

This palace is about a 10-minute walk from Catherines Palace and well worth combining the two as they are both very different.
