Tsarskoe Selo or the town Pushkin is an outstanding imperial complex of parks and palaces with artistic and elegance architectural landmarks. It was a summer residence of the Russian monarchs, where world-famous architects created unique examples of various artistic styles. We can admire the elegance of a magnificent Catherin Palace and its wonderful park with 18-centures marble statues and historic obelisks, the beauty of Alexander Palace, the charm of blue ponds of Alexander park. The complex of the Catherin Palace is connected with the building of the Tsarskoe Selo Imperial Lyceum, which was created for the preparation future statesmen. Constructed in 1810, it became the best high school in Russia for the talented boys from aristocratic families. One of the most famous students of the Lyceum was Alexander Pushkin. The Lyceum is the symbol of our city and the memory to the greatest Russian poet. Tsarskoe Selo was called “The Town of Muses” because it inspired a lot of celebrated Russian poets, artists and musicians to create their masterpieces in music, poetry, art. “Here so many lyres were hung on branches…” – said A. Akhmatova in her poem about the town, where she spent many happy years. A lot of famous people lived in Tsarskoe Selo – Nikolay Gumilyov, Innokenty Annensky, Anna Akhmatova, Alexey Tolstoy, Olga Forsh, Alexander Belyaev and others.
During the years of the Nazi occupation my native town suffered a great damage and after the end of the war strenuous efforts were made to restore it. Some of the landmarks were raised from the ashes. Our generation is greatful to people, who restored the Catherin Palace and the unique Amber room. According to UNESCO, Pushkin is one of the ten most attractive cities for tourists.
Welcome to my native city and admire its beauty and charm!
