This was my favorite palace in town. It is extremely beautifull and built with a lot of taste. Gardens must be really beautifull in the summer, but anyways there is no crowd in winter. Interior is built with a lot of gold and represents the...More

I went in winter (Feb), and it was excellent - I am sure in the summer when the garden is in bloom and fountains are running it would be even better. Amber room is awesome (can't take photos in it, FYI).

This is a WONDERFUL palace and a big attraction in St Petersburg. However it is difficult to get to. I don't mind travelling on a train from the centre of St Petersburg but there is no signing at all to the Palace. Nothing at all!...More
