About 25 km outside St Petersburg, Pavlovsk is a more intimate kind of Imperial Palace, beautiful layout, beautifully restored, most pleasant as it seems to be a bit off the "beaten track"

Maybe not as popular than Peterhof or the Hermitage, therefore less people and you can find yourself alone in the beautiful nature along the pathways and forest. Ideal for a picnic and a visit of the palace avoiding queues and crowds.

Don't be discouraged by the simple exterior. Inside you will find one of the most elegantly and tastefully decorated palace in Russia. Highly impressed!

The palace is very nice and should be seen before grandeur of Catherine's palace to be appreciated. Make sure you leave a couple of hours to enjoy the park.

I'm sorry I don't remember how long it took to get to Pavlovsk Palace because we were with a guide, didn't drive ourselves and made other stops along the way. One museum in town that we particularly liked was the Defense... More
