  Mikhailovskiy Castle
by Canadienne
 
 

Viewable from the southern edge of the Summer Gardens, the Mikhailovsky Castle is bordered by its own gardens and makes a nice extension to a walk through the former. The castle was undergoing a cosmetic touch-up during our visit ~ according to the English weekly, the colour had been updated and brightened considerably. . .the review was not entirely positive.

Having not seen the previous tone though, we thought the colour was beautiful and the steeple was striking from even a distance.

The building houses part of the Russian Museum's collection, but we didn't make it inside this one.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
