“Different style palace for the others”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This palace is in the classic style, beautiful in a very different way from all the other major palaces in the St. Petersburg area. We were lucky to have visited the Palace when the number of tourists was low, probably because it was first thing in the morning. Another of the incredible and amazing Russian palaces in this area.

“A Vastly Underated experience by Tourists”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This thousand acre park and Palace are beautiful, serene. This is the home of Tsar Paul and his wife Maria Fyodorovna. She loved this place and nurtured it for another 28 years after her husbands assassination. Everything is impeccable. The Park itself would be worth the trip out of St petersburg and lots of Russians make a day trip out of enjoying this park with loads of trails, hills and lakes.

“The wonder of 'new build'”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This palace was a shell after WW2 - so it was reassuring to see all the building and craft skills still exist.

The gardens are beautiful.

“Just Heavenly.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

As a frequent visitor to the lovely St. Petersburg, I have to say that Pavlovsk is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The alleyway of trees leading you to the park is so peaceful- and being off the beaten track, you don't have the same issue of crowds like at Peterhof Palace or Catherine's Palace. Then, once you set your eyes on the park.. Its breathtaking. Really, its just one of those special places that you promise yourself you will see again someday.
