“spectacular and beautiful”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

This is a big palace - you see over 20 rooms - and the decoration in a range of styles is spectacular but also beautiful. It has marvellous inlaid floors, elaborate chandeliers and a drop-dead gorgeous baroque theatre. Worth taking the audioguide as there is little information in the rooms. More attractive in our view, if less grand, than the state rooms in the Winter Palace in the Hermitage.

“Let down”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We went here as I really wanted to see it, but it was closed- no explanation as to why. Complete let down.

“Interesting for the history”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Some of the rooms in here are a little cheesy with the recreations, but overall this is a neat place to check out. The history and legends kind of speak for themselves so it is cool to walk in the footsteps.

“Noted:Been there,done that”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

A former private residence where Rasputin was killed. The story is historically important in the history of Russia, but less thrilling to visitors from other countries. The diorama, wax figure of Rasputin in the cellar was almost creepy. The home included a small, but ornate theater. The saving grace was a performance by a male chorus of Russian folk music. Interior photos were NOT allowed, limiting memorances to souvenir shop purchases.
