How to get to Strelna from St. Petersburg
Strelna is one of the oldest suburbs of St. Petersburg. For a long time, a small village on the shores of the Gulf of Finland led a quiet slow-paced life, but fifteen years ago the Konstantinovsky Palace turned from romantic ruins into a state residence - everyone can visit it if high-level negotiations are not held here.
It is interesting to have look at the wooden palace of Peter I, in which original things were preserved along with the garden. According to the legend, the tsar was the first who planted potatoes on these beds. Vegetables still grow well here.
