A beautiful palace with extensive park and hundreds of fountains but don't miss entry into the palace itself and especially the Special Treasury which has on display clothing and personal gifts dating from Peter the Great. The grounds and fountains are amazing and too vast to see in one visit but spend as much time there as you can and enjoy.

This is definitely must visit site. Even the weather in July was like winter in Southern Europe, the feeling were still very deep. To get there by fast boat is the best option. It arrives to the lower park which is the most beautiful part. The fountains makes the place to be very special. It will take at least one day to walk around.

Quite crowded, but upon entry you can see why. The gold gilded fountains are eye popping. Make sure you get there for when they start the fountains (11am) as they have music playing and all sorts of hoopla around it. Wander to the back to get away from the crowds as it is beautiful and you can touch the Baltic while you are there. The planting as beautiful and well maintained. It is worth the long bus ride, but you can also take a fast hydrofoil from the center of town out very readily and get a nice harbor cruise at the same time. The front gardens and getting inside the Museum is a separate ticket that we did not get simply because we had already gone to so many grand estates, but I bet it was commensurate with the great lower gardens. There are also a great number of stalls where the buses let out that sell a wide variety of souvenirs and other items that are negotiable.

If it had been a little less crowded I would have given it a 5 rating. The palace in covered in gold and fountains and history. Our tour was a little rushed but, it was so crowded that was fine with me.
