    Bandshell

    There are also a number of smaller, unnamed buildings close to the palace ~ alongside the larger Cameron's Dairy and the Aviary.

    The grounds were almost empty of people when we were there ~ admittedly, the weather wasn't terrifically suited to a leisurely walk, but, ultimately, having the grounds to ourselves only added to the atmosphere.

    Cold Bath

    Cold Bath

    This beautiful yellow-hued building was initially built as a swimming pool (the original furnishings included art, tapestries & furniture). . .the building extends further on the other side, as opposed to just being a round-house.

    It's not open for wandering visitors, but a peek inside revealed what appeared to be a workshop of some kind. There were easels and paintbrushes. . .and a lot of dust and mess.

    Apollo Colonnade

    If you journey up the hill at the rear of the palace to visit the Apollo Colonnade, you'll suddenly realize just how close the grounds are to the roads and traffic of the modern city.

    The paths and ponds of the lower grounds are peaceful and quiet, but this "ruin" is victim of the encroaching city.

    Temple of Friendship

    Temple of Friendship

    Constructed in 1780, shortly before construction began on the Pavlovsk Palace, the Temple of Friendship is located just a short distance north-east of the palace.

    I managed to get a photo that hides the evidence, but the far side of the building is undergoing heavy repairs.

    L'Etoile

    Muse, L'Etoile

    The area of the Pavlovsk grounds called L'Etoile was the first part to be designed and landscaped.

    There's a circle of statues representing the muses, each with its accompanying musical, writing or art instrument.

    On a drier day, there are also a number of benches on the pathway leading to and past L'Etoile. . .it would be a lovely area for a picnic.

    The Pavlovsk forest and park is a beautiful place to escape from the urban crowded city of St Petersburg on a sunshine day.
