A must see. Beautiful grounds and fabulous museum which is well worth the visit. The fall is a beautiful time to visit and the weather was extremely good. This was my second trip and I'd highly recommend this Palace to any age traveler. It is amazing!

Catherine it seems was never satisfied with anything. This is most apparent in her summer palace that dazzles with gold and crystal and Amber, and countless priceless treasures. A room encrusted with Amber? Really you must see this, it is not to be believed! And make sure you take a tour that includes the "Amber Room" as I am not sure that all tours do. The Palace is one of the jewels of Saint Petersburg and should not to be missed!

The exquisite art, the gilded linden wood, the delft blue heating stoves, the porcelain - everything about this palace is stunning. It is well worth the drive to Pushkin to see the beauty of this place and imagine the history that unfolded here.

Wear comfortable shoes for walking indoors (they will insist that you put on the shoe covers which are provided) and touring the grounds. You'll want to see as much as you possibly can during your visit.

I loved our tour of Catherine's Palace and much preferred it to the Hermitage - purely because although it was reasonably crowded, we weren't packed in like sardines. It is about three quarters of an hour from St Petersburg by coach.The palace is sumptuous with many gorgeous rooms. funny having heard so much about the Amber Room, I was a little underwhelmed by it. Some of the other rooms though were just beautiful - light, airy and one could imagine the court enjoying their time there. The grounds of the Palace are vast and simply beautiful. Dotted round the park are numerous pavilions, including one lovely one by the lake in which a male a cappella will sing to you in glorious harmonies - just magic.
