Palaces – St Petersburg

If you want to understand St Petersburg properly, you should visit in winter. Yes, it's quite gloomy and temperatures are low, but it's also wonderfully atmospheric. The impressive Tsarskoe Selo and Peterhof Palaces never look more beautiful than when the sun finally rises over them, illuminating the coverage of fresh crisp snow. On this week’s show from the beautiful former Russian capital, Martyn Andrews, guidebook in hand, explores the Amber Rooms, spectacular interiors and breathtaking throne rooms. A show not to be missed!
