I had heard about this palace but it was beyond what I imagined. The gold and ornate architecture is like nothing I'd seen before. Inside the palace itself is no different. Amazing!

September 2016 entire grounds and building are closed. We would love to have seen it. It is directly across from The Catherine Palace and would be easy to pair with that tour.
