This palace located in the south eastern part of Saint Petersburg used to serve as the summer home for the Tsars. A flamboyant and elaborate monument to the affluence of the Russian Crown, this palace is a shining example of the Rococo style of architecture.

Catherine I of Russia commissioned the building in 1717, after which it has been renovated and remodeled several times. The exterior of the castle had intricate decorations in gold which added to the majestic quality of this imposing structure.

The frescoes, paintings and statues that are stored in the palace are truly one of a kind and must be included in the itinerary for all tourists to the city of Saint Petersburg.

  • Beautiful decorations and glittering gold designs. The place encourages group trips not individuals and provides no booklets in English, so it is a little difficult to know the anecdotes. Amber room is really beautiful and worth visiting. The staff is not very friendly, and do not provide any information in English. The campus is huge and has a nice lake, can be a good picnic spot. It has a restaurant which makes very tasty Russian food.

  • Had lots of fun here. The "tricky" fountains were really fun to watch. Rich with the history of Peter the Great and his family. Lots of beautiful paintings. Of course, there is no air conditioning so it can get hot inside! But the palace grounds are exquisite.

  • A very beautiful palace in the countryside of St. Petersburg, Russia. Much history about Catherine having the palace constructed so she could have a country retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The palace is full of fine China used during her era of reign. Many of the rooms are gilded with gold. A beautiful place to visit.

  • Five stars are simply not enough to rate this extraordinary palace. What a beauty outside and so much gold inside! Incredible to think that its so extensively restored following near ruin by fire following WWII. So treasured are the highly polished floors that you'll even have to wear 'slippers'!

  • Here you will see an amazing palace. It is huge and the tour of the inside is fabulous and informative. The grounds are beautiful also.
