It's a bit difficult to find it for the first time (the entrance is just next to the café-restaurant), but it's a very interesting place - especially if you are not seen the Hermitage yet. You can see how a very-very rich nobleman lived next...More

The palace is actually a big house, built at the riverside, has great views and stores many historical things and artefacts, collected by Menshikov. Interesting to visit, but exposition is quite small, hour to see is more then enough. Biggest part of the building is...More

The fascinating Menshikov Palace is one of the oldest buildings in St Petersburg. Impressive from the exterior, the interior consists of a sequence of public rooms which give a great impression of the life of 18th Century Russian aristocrats. I particularly liked the beautiful ceiling...More

We visited this museum along with the Hermitage. It is a good ways away, but if you buy the regular ticket is is included (as long as you visit the same day). It is certainly worth a look and it much less crowded. We got...More

The palace isn't too big so you will not fed up with it quickly. The guide don't go on about objects for ages. In the museum there are a lot of very famous portraits
