We were spoilt for choice with all the fantastic places that there are to visit in St. Peterburg and the Catherine Palace was probably up there at the top, alongside the Winter Palace/Hermitage Museum. The rooms were grand and there were a lot of historical information and photos on the Romanovs. The Amber Room was not as spectacular as we... More

The state room and the Amber Room are worth the entrance fee alone. The park will be great in the Summer

We were lucky to go in the winter as we were told that the summer is horrendously busy. Due to the very few people we were able to see the full impact of the incredible gilded rooms and the Amber room. Don't miss this one. Go with a guide to get the best out of this.

As with other palaces in St Petersberg full of artwork and china etc with elaborate room design. Highlight here is the Amber Room which is quite stunning. On a dry day very pleasant to walk around the large grounds with fountains.

Tranquil & away from the usual tourist crowd. Gardens are needly arranged & the compund kept clean. You'll need a good pair of walking shoes to explore.

The front entrance with two stories of Greek columns and statues bears a strong resemblance to the “Library of Celsus” in ancient Ephesus, Turkey.2 The scene in episode 2 of the miniseries “War and Peace” that is constantly played in the Lifetime commercials is the New Year’s Eve Ball in “The Great Hall.

Fabulous place to see. Catherine the Great aquired art, furniture, and fittings from all over Europe and the place is truly spectacular. It has been restored to it former grandeur by the Russian Government. Keep in mind this tour, like all others requires a fair amount of walking. Not difficult walking but, typical of many tourist attractions here, the tour... More

What a beautiful place to visit, fantastic palace to view from the outside and the most amazing interior! We visited in January when there was plenty of snow on the ground and although cold, it just added to the beauty of this place. The grounds are well kept and are also well worth taking extra time to stroll around.

Stay a few hours or all day. It is always a great place to spend time and one can come back again and again. So lovely and full of history. Very clean and pleasant.
