Impressive despite the realization that nothing is really old, all has been restored/rebuild after WW2. Beautiful palace, peaceful and spectacular gardens. It does help to have a guide to get some structure to the visit and realize relations between the rooms and art int the...More

The Russians have done an outstanding job of restoring buildings trashed in The Great Patriotic War. This is one of them. Well worth visiting the palace and gardens. If you have to choose just one excursion outside of town then go for the Peterhof.

Largely destroyed during the Second World War, this palace has been almost entirely restored and the end result is absolutely amazing. Expect some work to still be ongoing but this won't detract from the palace itself. The gardens are just as impressive and seemingly never...More

You should spend a day here. I especially liked the garden, which is just so vast and beautiful. The palace of the legendary Ecatherine the Great

Once again we were on a tour and didn't have enough time, especially for the gardens which are wonderful. I think the photo's say more. You could do with a full day here.

The park is just delightful to walk around and the palace is just a fabulous place to see especially the re done amber palace. it was destroyed by the Germans in WWII and was redone slowly and restored to its beauty.

The palace was mostly destroyed during the WWII though a lot of the treasures were safely stored. What you see is an extensive restoration over decades including the famous Amber room. I suggest to get a guided tour since guided tours see a few more...More

Hi there we went in January 2017 and it was open. I don't see why it would be closed in Feb. We did the palace and the troika ride. It is very difficult to get there by public transport as not many people speak English... More
