Plan to visit Tsarskoye Selo (Catherine Palace)

Hello,

I am planning to visit Catherine Palace for famous Amber Room on Sunday 15th April so can you please advise me if it is still open on that day?

I understood that it needs to be travel from centre by underground train and bus (?) - any tips on this will be appreciated.

Thanks

Another way to get to Catherine's palace is to go by metro as far as Moskovskaya metro station and then use a local bus ("marshrutka") to go to Pushkin.

MaryHare,

official Palace web-site has info on how to get there, please see http://eng.tzar.ru/info/transport

Even though April 15 is "russian" Easter, the Palace will be open as on any Sunday http://eng.tzar.ru/info/price

Also you may want to use search function here, type in something like "Tsarskoe Selo" or "Catherine Palace" and you'll see plenty of information from DIY-visitors and from those going with the groups
