Very nice, so different that all the gold. Shows how it was in the beginning, small, simple. The different areas of the cottage show the different periods of the history.

If your going to spend the 2hr going and coming from the Peterhof you should include the tour of this small Palace. Very nice and not very big by St. Pete standards.

It was a long walk to the cottage and the setting was peaceful, but after everything else, seemed out of place. It would have been better if people were alowed to go in, rather than peeking through the windows
