In addition to the fabulous palace, through the woods was another, small "palace" where Catherine went for small private gatherings. Like her elegant dacha.

This is nevertheless a beautiful palace/garden, but if your schedule at St Petersburg is very tight, better go to Winter Palace or Summer Palace which are more grand and with more things to be seen by visitors.

This is an interesting place to visit. The park is lovely and a stroll for an hour or more very pleasant. It seems luck plays a part in the time to actually start a tour of the house. Lines can be a couple of hours....More
