I have visited the park and the palace for the first time, and was really amazed by this place. The park is huge and a nice place for long pleasant walks. The palace is one of most beautiful in Saint-Petersburg. The history of the place...More
When our SPB guide discovered that huge crowds and long lines were causing long delays at Catherine’s Palace, she wisely substituted Pavlovsk’s Palace. Just when we thought we’ve seen enough of the enormous opulence if the Russian czars, we were introduced to this “simple” family...More
Probably wouldn't have gone here had it not been on the tour with Catherine's Palace. This neoclassical 'palace' was built by Catherine for her son Pavel (Paul). Beautiful paintings and antique furniture and sculptures. Lovely park surrounds the building.

I'm sorry I don't remember how long it took to get to Pavlovsk Palace because we were with a guide, didn't drive ourselves and made other stops along the way. One museum in town that we particularly liked was the Defense and Siege of Leningrad Museum.

It's a very small, off the beaten path place, but well worth your time.
