Explore the source of marble used in some of the most significant buildings in the city, such as St. Isaac's Cathedral, the floors of the Kazan Cathedral, and the window sills of the Hermitage at Ruskeala Mountain Park. This park features a viewing platform showcasing panoramic views and a walking trail leading to the former marble quarry, now filled with water. Rent a boat and sail around the lake or sit on the benches scattered throughout the park. Many parts of the trail can get slippery because of the water, so watch your footing and be mindful of young children.

  • Was expecting an experience of history and nature. But development has turned it into somewhat of an amusement park. In that sense a disappointment. Could have - and probably was - a great nature...

  • Incredible beauty of nature! Amazingly huge stones! Very cozy place to visit, pleasant tickets price. In the evening colorful lights are popping up and it feels like you are in a fairytale! A warm souvenirs shop, restaurant and wc are available on the territory
  • Magnificent natural masterpiece! The canyon is incredible with emerald lake. Sincerely advise to come up to Italian canyon as it has amazing marble wall. You can take a free picture and print it immediately in Polaroid format 👍 there are several cafes and the burger one is really cool. Prices are affordable
