Among many Saint Petersburg summer palaces Pavlovsk is less visited then Pushkin or Petrgoff. However it definitely has its own charm. The park is beautiful. It was build as English landscape and you can easily spend few hours just wondering around. We didn’t have time...More

The Palace is a reflection of the extensive travel of Paul I & his wife Maria. These influences can be appreciated in the Greek room and the Italian Hall which were a couple of our favourites from the many impressive rooms. Don’t miss the Temple...More

Even in Spring, with all the snow, this park is gorgeous and a must-see for fans of Dostoyevsky. The palace is also beautiful and filled with amazing art and architecture. Go inside the palace if you want to glimpse the life of Russian royalty or...More

About 20 kms outside of the main city - and again one of the palaces that have had to be completely rebuilt after WWII this Palace really appealed. It has a wonderful setting especially when there is still a lot of snow on the ground.

If you know Sandringham Palace in the UK and how it is quite a "homely" palace then you will find that this is similar as it was occupied by Tsar Paul I and his wife Maria year round. This palace isn't in the grand style...More

Combined with trip to Catherine's palace. Alot less grand, but more homely. Also, doesn't seem to be on the list for mass organised tours, so very private and intimate which gives a better sense of "being there", and able to enjoy at your own pace....More

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.

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
