"Mikailovskiy Gardens ~ Mikhailovskiy Castle" Top 5 Page for this destination Downtown Sites Tip by Canadienne
Downtown Sites, Saint Petersburg: 35 reviews and 34 photos
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.
