You should spend a day here. I especially liked the garden, which is just so vast and beautiful. The palace of the legendary Ecatherine the Great

Once again we were on a tour and didn't have enough time, especially for the gardens which are wonderful. I think the photo's say more. You could do with a full day here.

The park is just delightful to walk around and the palace is just a fabulous place to see especially the re done amber palace. it was destroyed by the Germans in WWII and was redone slowly and restored to its beauty.

Wow, what a palace! The quality of the restoration is fantastic! The opulence that these royal families lived in has to be seen to be believed. The grounds are also really great, and enormous! This was really well worth the visit!

It is fortunate that there are timed entrances to this palace because crowds were very heavy. Crowd control at this site was good; a group couldn't go into most rooms until the group before it exited; that kept some of the jamming up under control....More

You will not believe the extravagance- gold gilding everywhere in this palace. Every surface is covered with gold leaf, polished mirrors and the brilliant chandeliers. It was very interesting to learn more about this family and its dominance during a huge period of Russia history....More

Hi there we went in January 2017 and it was open. I don't see why it would be closed in Feb. We did the palace and the troika ride. It is very difficult to get there by public transport as not many people speak English... More
