Do may the journey out to this wonder in the countryside -- just the ballroom and the amber room make a visit really rewarding.

If you enjoy lavish gardens, do not miss these! We toured after the palace and we could have spent hours here enjoying them. The gardens rival Peterhof and worth the time.

This magnificent palace is known as the Catherine Palace (though most of the construction was made earlier - mainly at the times of Elisaveta Petrovna) and was formed by well known Rastrelli in late Baroque style - sumptuous and majestic (even a bit pompous) and...More

The drive from Saint Petersburg takes about 45-50 mins straight down the Moscow Prospect until you turn off for Pushkin. As for how long it takes to tour the the palace and grounds? That is entirely up to you, we did it in... More
