Not to be missed...the fountains are absolutely amazing. We didn’t visit the church but wandered the fountains and park for a couple hours, loved it.

You just cannot miss the gardens. We chose not to visit the palace, bacuse palaces tend to be the same inside, but we spent about four hours walking through the gardens and enjoying the fountains. It is grandiose and splendid. Like you have never seen. I've been to Versailles and to Vienna and this is the most beautiful.

This is a beautiful place unfortunately we went when it was rainy so we couldn't enjoy it to the fullest. You have to take a ferry there and then you pay to enter just the gardens and another fee to enter the palace. Since it was rainy we couldn't appreciate the beauty as much as what it must look like on a sunny day. My advice is to watch the weather and plan to go on a sunny day.

This Russian palace will leave you open mouthed! So much gold and wealthy furnishings from one room to the next. Not to be missed.
