About 25 km outside St Petersburg, Pavlovsk is a more intimate kind of Imperial Palace, beautiful layout, beautifully restored, most pleasant as it seems to be a bit off the "beaten track"

Maybe not as popular than Peterhof or the Hermitage, therefore less people and you can find yourself alone in the beautiful nature along the pathways and forest. Ideal for a picnic and a visit of the palace avoiding queues and crowds.

A very enjoyable excursion and one I am glad we decided to embark on. It was not over crowded either, so that made a huge difference.

As this is a smaller palace, build for Catarina the Great's son, it had a very nice feel to ie, beautiful furnitures and art pieces. Huge advantage: not so busy as the palaces in the city. Just over an hour from St Petersburg close to...More

Don't be discouraged by the simple exterior. Inside you will find one of the most elegantly and tastefully decorated palace in Russia. Highly impressed!

The palace is very nice and should be seen before grandeur of Catherine's palace to be appreciated. Make sure you leave a couple of hours to enjoy the park.

We have been here previously and the 2 Palaces we've seen - one late C18 and the other where Nicholas 2 lived at when he could- are both worth a visit even if not quite at the Catherine Palace standard.

Not as popular with tourists to visit as further out of St Petersburg. The family home of Catherine's grandson had a real homely vibe as well as having splendid things that you find in some of other palaces. Well recommend it

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... More
