Unfortunately, I was not able to visit the inside of the palace. I had to confine myself to an external examination at night. Nevertheless, the building of the palace with two pavilions, built in 1764-1766 in the classicism style with baroque elements, is impressive.

Quality of interior (walls,windows,doors) is much better,than in Paris sights.Staff is very polite and well-educated. Security guards told as history. :-) All stones are marble and granite.There is excellent collection of pictures.This is a bright palace and atmosphere is very light. It's a pity,that there is no classical music as background (low level of sound). We were in Versallis and Louvre 2 weeks before visiting the Imperial Palace in Tver. I got confirmation,that Russians have good aesthetic taste and can do high quality masterpieces. Thanks a lot !!!…

There is a price list, written entirely in Russian. The entry fee for foreign citizens is double what Russians pay. Argh. The building is lovely, and the art on display is well curated. Its definitely worth seeing.

Many people would not expect to find such a grand place museum in Tver. Which also houses one of biggest Russian art collections from 18-20cc in the country. It feels like a smaller version of Tretyakovka or even Hermitage at that. From 16th cc Flemish masters artpieces to best world famous Russian painters of 19th century to the large collection of Russian Icons. Worth 2-3 hours visit easily. Guided tours are offered on premises ad hoc. Tickets could be made more expensive for everything that is offered on exhibit! There are comparatively tiny museums in Moscow where tickets cost more..…
