This is well worth visiting, both museum and gardens. Really enjoyed it and the history. It helps if the weather is dry as there are so many fountains to see which are majestic.

The Palace sits about 45 minutes outside of St Petersburg so we rode on their new “super highway” from our ship. They are very proud of this highway that was built to support travelers from St Petersburg Airport to the recent FISA World cup soccer...More

This is the most amazing Palace that is beautifully restored and quite magical. The artwork and furniture collections are stunning and the grounds are beautiful. It is well worth a visit if you are in St Petersburg

We went to the palace with SPB tours. We arrived late in the day, so there were no lines and the palace wasn't crowded. The rooms are full of gold decorations and beautiful paintings on the ceilings in the rococo style. I especially liked the...More

The Catherine Palace and Park are living testimony to the extraordinary wealth and power of the Tsars. Although heavily damaged in WWII (see the photo exhibits showing damage and restoration work as you exit the Palace), it has been restored to much of its original...More
