325 meters long facade of this palace was created by Rastrelli and is similar to the Winter Palace in nearby St. Petersburg. Entrance fee is charged for park entry and separately for the palace. Independent tourists are admitted only during limited time slots so you need to queue early or take organized tours from St. Petersburg. Excessively embellished amber room is one of the highlights of the palace, which has been painstakingly restored after heavy damage incurred during WWII.
