This site is rather adjacent to the Pushkin Town in Pushkin District. And very near to the Pavlovsk Town center is situated this beautiful palace and park. That is a big estate and in the same time the youngest one of the grand Imperial properties around St.Petersburg. It is named in the honour of Tsar Pavel, the son of the... More

It also takes about an hour to get to Pavlovsk by car, but it is worth the visit, although not as big as the other palaces, it is one of the Palaces that one must go see. Again this is a nice visit on a sunny day so one can enjoy the gardens, the inside is not as luxurious as... More

I especially recommend to visit the park in autumn. The golden leaves just make the whole place look like in a story book! The palace is small but beautiful, and you can get lost in your thoughts in its poetic English-styled park. If you walk enough, you might as well find a little amphitheater in the woods by the river... More

Pavlovsk is a beautiful palace that warrants a visit. It is unique among the major Imperial palaces in that it never underwent any major renovations and expansions (other than post WWII restoration). Also unlike the other major palaces, it is not in the Baroque style. Perhaps owing to the role of Scottish born Russian court architect Charles Cameron, the palace... More

Our friends had been in St Petersburg one time and never went to Pavlovsk, so we couldn't skip it as we wanted to have unique experience. I think it is an excellent way to explore the Russian countryside and get out of the city. There are lots of different areas in Pavlovsk Park which you can explore. We used the... More

I went to this palace with a good tour guide to explain the history of each furniture and enjoy the garden. When you visit the Catherine summer palace, try to take some time to visit this palace.

Lost in the woods, not so far from Tsarskoe Tselo, you will find the beautiful castle. The english level there is extremely poor, you need to speak a bit Russian. They also have guides speaking english who can give you a visit.

This is a beautiful, well furnished place. You could easily guess how they lived there. The library is absolutely impressive.

If you see one palace you see them all. This is true for Pavlovsk Palace. This is close to Catherine Palace and so a easy visit.

Catherine The Great build this palace for her son. While not quite as grand as her own living arrangements, he certainly lived comfortably. This is a great architectural treasure filled with many fine pieces of artwork. The grounds are lovely and make a wonderful stroll on a nice day, but they aren't as extensive as some other places around the... More
