This Palace shows you the life style of the Russian Royalty and history. There are beautiful rooms, fountains, ponds, and minor palaces.

Catherines Palace is a beautiful place and definitely worth travelling all the way from the city to Pushkin. However it was really, really crowded. It's not possible to stop where you want to, the tour group is constantly being pushed since there's a massive queue...More

A definite "must-see" while visiting the St. Petersburg area. Make sure it's part of your tour, as the history of the palace is both heartbreaking and fascinating. The Amber Room is AMAZING! The opulence of the entire place makes me know why the peasants revolted!

Nice palace, well done restored. Beautiful park. But you need to pay 2 admission tickets. One of them is 1000 rubles, for the palace interior, bit pricey considering there is no English guide or descriptions. Russian people pay 700 rubles and they have free guide....

One the best places to visit in St. Petersburg. It is just beautiful. We went in October and it was incredibly crowded. Full of people and tours, we hated that part. It was easy to get there, Uber is cheap from the metro station.

This palace has definitely had it's ups and downs. Built to show the magistracy of Russia as a showplace, not a home. This tour was really great because we had a private guide. She taught us the art of going to the front of the...More

Hi, the queue of garden is fast, therefore it's not long. visitors should pay money for park and palace separately (you will pay money just for park visiting). The park is so beautiful and enjoyable. have a nice time...
