Outstanding complex which consists of Grand Palace and huge gardens surrounding it with some other small but equally lovely buildings scattered around. You can easily spend a whole day here. And you definately should do it.

From the minute you walk in the main gates there are WOW moments for the next 3 hours. The rooms and the gardens are magnificent.

We only toured the gardens, and then probably only a portion. The fountains were magnificent. We toured the end of August and it wasn't terribly crowded the day we were there.

2500 rubles per person (ferry from st petersburg, plus "park" entrance which they force you to pay at the pier because you are literally trapped there unless u take the next ferry back right away.) Biggest waste of time and money in our whole trip!!

The history of the Romanov's and this place really impact me, I have traveled around the world but the gold and the beauty of this place is something you will never forget. I highly recommend this visit.

Consider just paying the entrance fee and then enjoy the sights for free. Maybe considering a tour of the Grotto and the Hermitage if you like mechanical things.

Peter the Great wanted his own Versailles and he one upped the French. This place is so spectacular it is hard to describe. Everywhere you look there is grandeur and magnificence. .If you can plan it, allow yourself several hours to take in the palace...More
