Palace was a low scale copy of the other bigger palaces we had seen. Still nice to visit but not as elaborate. Park was a disappointment as it is billed as amazing and is intact manly forest and woodland

We loved Pavlovsk's Palace, mainly because though it is a 'palace' it feels homier than others we have see. Also, I wish we had had the time to investigate the grounds, as the pictures on this page are beautiful.

Unlike other palaces, this one extensively uses white marble and bright, cheerful colors. Hands down this was my favorite interior of all the palaces I saw in St. Petersburg area. I especially loved the bedroom and great hall. Pavlovsk extensively draws on Rome and Greece...More

Attended at 2001 Pavlovsk Palace and park impresed us deeply. Wild and regular at same time. It was our honeymoon time and we enjoyed this voyage. It's difficult to describe the preciousness of small trails,hidden pavilions and statues you'd better watch yourselves.

What we liked the most about the Palace was looking at the old pictures taken just after the Germans had destroyed the Palace and how it looks in the present. Amazing that the Palace wasn't just completely demolished rather than reconstructed. Quite a testament to...More

My wife and I will be visiting in September. How long did it take you to get from SP to the Pavolvsk palace? Are there any other smaller, more off beat sites or palaces or museums to see in the area. We have seen the biggies on past visits to SP?
