Konstantinovsky Palace Tour

Get a private excursion, hold a business meeting, play a wedding or organize other event in
one of the most beautiful country residence in St. Petersburg
The Konstantinovsky Palace in Strelna is a part of the State Palace of Congresses complex. Today it is a delightful palace and park ensemble on the coast of the Gulf of Finland, restored and updated in the 19th century. Many people know that the Palace of Congresses is the current residence of the Russian Federation President and that important meetings, negotiations, and forums take place there.

Vizit to the Konstantinovksy Palace and the surrounding parks is an opportunity to touch not only the history of the Russian state of the 17th-19th centuries, but also to see the modern history that is being made today in these halls.

Sometimes the beauty of the neighboring Peterhof captivates tourists so much that they fail to pay attention to Strelna, but what an unforgivable mistake it is! Firstly, the palace and park ensembles of these two suburbs are completely different, they have different history and fate. And secondly, few people know that initially Peter the Great began construction of the imperial residence with a water park, fountains, and cascades in Strelna which was supposed to become the New Versailles.

History of the Konstantinovksy Palace in Strelna

The construction of the palace and park ensemble began in 1715, which is 6 years earlier than the foundation of the Peterhof ensemble. And, despite the fact that the royal family eventually chose the palace in Peterhof as their residence, the history of Konstantinovksy Palace was destined for a very interesting, though difficult, fate.
The Konstantinovksy Palace got its name from the second owner, the Grand Duke of the Russian Empire, though he was not the only Konstantin who owned the palace. Since 1797 the estate belonged to the second son of Paul I, Konstantin Pavlovich, and after his death it was passed to the second son of Nicholas I, Konstantin Nikolayevich, who together with his wife owned the palace and park ensemble until 1892.

The Grand Palace in Strelna began to be called Konstantinovsky from the middle of the 19th century, it was at that time that reconstruction was carried out under the guidance of the famous architects H. Meyer, A.I. Stackenschneider and H. Bosse. At the turn of the century, the Konstantinovsky Palace was a wonderful ensemble often visited by the representatives of the Romanov family and their high-ranking guests.

The end of the 20th century was a difficult challenge for the Konstantinovsky Palace when the palace experienced the last stage of destruction. And only in 2001 by the decree of the President the historical and architectural monument was brought back to life. Thus a new life began for the Konstantinovsky Palace as a part of the State Palace of Congresses complex.

The Konstantinovsky Palace nowadays

Today, the Konstantinovsky Palace is a symbol of the revival of Russia and its cultural heritage. In just two years the palace was completely reconstructed, the Lower and Upper parks were recreated according to the drawings. The Stable, the Ice Cellar, and the Blacksmith Shop were also historically reconstructed. And already in 2003, on the 300th anniversary of St. Petersburg, the palace and park complex in Strelna opened its doors to guests.

Today, Most Petersburg offers guests the services of both individual excursions and the rental of the Konstantinovsky Palace for meetings, congresses, events. For more information, please fill out the form below.
