Our Top 5

28.12.2021

Here are Tsarskoe Selo's Top 5 achievements in 2021, which has been another tough year of pandemic restrictions.

A decrease in visitor numbers affected the Museum financially and became a challenge we had to overcome by offering new guided tours, family programmes, and special tours of our reserve collections and sites that are usually closed for visiting.

All these great efforts allow us to go on with the restoration projects of local and world importance.
