To be seen after Hermitage, after Catherine Palace and Summer Palace. Also to been seen after the nigh boat tour when bridge opens. Nothing outstanding and less impressive than other sites.

All but destroyed during the war and still undergoing restoration but the rooms that are open to the public are beautifully restored. Opulent whilst retaining a homely feel. No queues and crowds – what a relief! Photography allowed inside. Well worth a visit.

Pavlovsk does not have the tourists that descend on the Catherine Palace, but what a gem! This palace is nestled in a beautiful park and is another example of Russian expertise in reconstruction and preservation.

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.

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.
