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

Beautiful palace and gardens. This palace belonged to the son of Catherine II. It is not too far away from Catherine's palace, it's beautiful but not heavily attended.

The garden is so beautiful and calm, not noisy as the Catherine park is. The place is look great and simple. You can enjoy the palace more than Hermitage also.

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
