I liked Paul's palace better than Catherine's palace, and I was really glad that we had hired a private guide, Sergei, to drive us so that we could see both of them, in addition to Alexander's Palace, in the same trip. Also by having a car, he knew where the closest parking was available, or he was able to drop us off close to an entrance. If you like that late 18th C style, this is something to see. It is too bad that most visitors don't have time to see this one, as the rooms and gardens are exquistely beautful. We were able to look at our own pace, and even retrace our steps. There is an interesting furniture exhibition, which occupies 16 rooms and is located on the III floor of the central building of the palace, which is a reconstruction of the interiors of living rooms of the upper class in Russia and the history of decorative art XIX - early XX centuries. Reconstruction were drawn from photographs, drawings and paintings with images of mansions and houses of Russia. You can view panoramic images of the rooms and this exhibition at pavlovskmuseum.ru
