Start the day at Arts Square, which is accessible from Gostiny Dvor metro station on Nevsky Avenue. In the center of the square is a monument to Alexander Pushkin, and in the distance you can see the facade of the Mikhailovsky Palace, which houses the Russian Museum.
Visit Russian Museum and see famous paintings by Russian artists. This collection will allow you to get acquainted with Russian culture and art. The neighboring building attached to the Russian Museum is an Ethnographic Museum. Many people do not visit it, but it is worth your time. This is the strongest Museum in Russia, where all the peoples who inhabit the country are described in detail.
Then go to the Mikhailovsky garden, which is located on the other side of the Palace. This garden is one of the most beautiful parks in Saint Petersburg. Go to the Rossi Pavilion, which is located on the Bank of the Griboyedov Canal. Walk along the canal and exit the Mikhailovsky Garden at the Church of the Savior on spilled Blood.
After photographing the Cathedral from the outside, be sure to go inside to see the mosaic panels that cover the entire interior of the temple. This is a memorial Church that was built on the site of the assassination of Emperor Alexander II.
After leaving the Church of the Savior on spilled Blood on the Bank of the Griboyedov Canal, go to the Engineering castle (also called Mikhailovsky castle), which was built by Emperor Paul I. It is not necessary to visit it, but it is very interesting to walk around and enter the courtyard.
From the Engineering castle go to the entrance to the Summer Garden. This is the oldest and perhaps the most beautiful Park in St. Petersburg. It has always been a favorite place for citizens to walk. There are beautiful sculptures, pavilions and fountains. Admire the fence of the Summer Garden overlooking the Neva River. This is a magnificent example of cast iron from the 18th century.
Follow the embankment of the Neva River to the Marble Palace. This is a beautiful example of Grand Ducal residences. The interior and exterior of the Palace are made of marble in different shades. The marble Palace is a branch of the Russian Museum, so art lovers should visit it inside.
