Catherine the Great gave this palace to her son in 1777. Damaged by a fire and by the Nazis, this palace has been rebuilt to show the original beauty. Amazing floors and ceilings.

Not quite so opulent, this palace 4km away from the Catherine Palace, is so much quieter, yet has the most beautiful gardens (pay extra to see the rose garden, but not the rest of the gardens), and the palace seems far more homely being on...More

This palace is obviously passed over in favor of Catherine's Palace or Peterhof by most tourist groups, which makes it nice. I had a private guide and for the majority of the tour we had the rooms to ourselves which was really special to get...More

Walking around these beautiful gardens is a privilege. If the weather is good, absolutely no need to pay for the entrance to the palace itself.

Perhaps not as famous as some of the other structures but fantastic nonetheless. Built by Catherine for her son Paul in the mid 18th century. Very elaborate rooms and some nice restoration. Well worth the time and effort to visit. Takes about an hour to...More

This was built by Catherine the Great for her son Paul in the 18th century. The rooms in this palace are amazingly decorated. As with much of Europe during WW2, many artifacts were hidden from the Germans to make sure they survived for future generations...More
