This Palace was worth the trip from St Petersburg! It is very nicely decorated, some rooms in the Chinese pavilion are among the most beautiful I have ever seen! This palace is not very popular which makes it very quiet. It is a very nice change after the Winterpalace or the Peterhof.

Set amidst pleasant parkland on the Gulf of Finland and close to The Peterhof ,
Oranienbaum is an impressive palace with hi-tech visual displays (English -although heavily accented commentary) describing its history. In the grounds the attractive
wooden slide building (albeit no longer with slide) is worth a look.
The only downside was that the entire frontage of the palace was covered in a mass of
wooden scaffolding. No guide book in English available to purchase.

this palace survived even the time of the siege during WWII.
it's still under reconstruction, but the main palace and lots of the park have already been polished to its former glamour.

taking the train from petersburg-baltiyskaya is simple. getting to the estate from the train station is a simple. people in the town are very helpful, if one asks for directions (if needed). there is a beautiful church of the archangel michael just opposite the main gate to the estate. when you exit the train you will see the white domes of that church and will know the direction. have a look inside the church, too.

one can easily spend a whole day out there. the palace tour is wonderful. and the park is spacious with lots of pavillons and palaces.
there are places within the park where you can buy food and refreshments. one can also rent a boat and get on the lake.
well organized.

Not the easiest to get to, but well worth the effort as it is wonderfully peaceful compared to Peterhof which is overrun by tourists. Take the metro to Avtovo (the same as Catherine Palace) and marshrutka 300 or 424 to Lomonosov or Oranienbaum. It takes about 40 minutes. Once you get there you have a wealth of attractions, as well as peaceful, beautifully maintained gardens. You may only eat at the restaurant across the road, so take a cut lunch.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. Not many go here, even Russians. The Chinese Palace is something special.

I want to say about this place as a St-Petersburg citizen , who have been living in the ST Petersburg since my birth. It is very light, funny, beautiful place , there is no pomposity and big loud groups of a tourists but this place has very big historical value. It would be better if you visited Oranienbaum it the summer or later spring! I will see amazing views and garden and park, there are several not big palaces, and I can say that the palaces have not pomposity, monarch persons who had a rest here in the past had a light, funny, carefree rest, I think you wont see and feel imperial power and pomp here There was the sliding hill for persons from monarch family and nobles in the past. Sliding hill have not saved but you can see the field where it was and you can image length of hill, there is a very amazing nature, I'm going to share photos from the Oraninbaum soon

The Complex, which is under the protection of UNESCO, is quite big: it is composed by different palaces and by a huge park. It's really nice to walk in the paths of the upper park and there is the chance to hire a boat for a good price and use it in a cosy lake (300 rubles for half an hour).
It's not famous as Peterhof or as other royal residences but it is really worthful going there!!

Do not miss the pavilion of Catherine II, with its newly opened Dining room. The main house is actually a bit borring, if you set aside the Crimson room.You also want to see the Sliding hill pavilion, hopefully also soon from the inside when it is restored.

First, it's much different from other Saint-Petersburg suburbian parks. It's not so famous, definetely not so pompous and that's why it's not crowded at all. It was founded not by an emperor or tsar, so the architecture is more modest. It was really shabby not so long ago but they have started to restore it. It's very nice to see how actively and carefully people work at the park now. There are some sculptures, very beautiful flowers but still it looks mostly like a wild forest with paths not a park.
It's strange but just a tiny part of the park with the Grand palace has a paid entrance (anyway it's not expensive, about 200 rubles), the biggest one can be visited for free. Note, it's quite difficult to find a place for parking.

This park is not as famous as Peterhof or Pavlovsk. Yet it deserve a close attention. It is the only park near Saint-Petersburg, which hadn't been damaged during WWII, so this one as genuine as it's possible on the fourth century of existence.
