[Entrance to the Rectory]


Pushkin, a suburb of St. Petersburg, is mainly notable for two things: the Lyceum, the school where the poet Pushkin studied, and the Grand Palace of Catherine the Great.

The entrance to the Lyceum, which adjoins the palace, is pictured above. Visitors can tour the dormitories, some of the classrooms, and many exhibits detailing Pushkin's time at the school, as well as artwork and exhibits about other famous students.

The Catherine Palace is a large Baroque structure. Inside is a dizzying array of beautifully adorned rooms and halls second only to the interior of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg itself. In front of the Palace is a large lawn and garden area with monuments and sculptures, one of which is pictured.
