  • Priorackij Palace has been removed from the main tourist complex. If you arrive in Gatchina without excursions. You can not find. or rather Big gatchina Palace. Park with a pavilion of Venus and the Birch House, wrest the traveler have all day. But find the hour for Priorat. Unusual for arfitekture and material stores and small Palace tajnv order of priora, and Christmas celebrations in Royal family. you see, how did the wall from the ground, make extraordinary photos on a background of Black Lake with beautiful-Prioratom

  • Small castle Priory is a rare example of the House which was built at the end of the XVIII Jahdt made of clay and Earth. The castle was built to command by Paul I as the seat of the Maltese Knights. Unfortunately, the Interior is not preserved. But even small castle looks very romantic. I think visit Priory Castle is more interesting for specialists, historians, or Architrkten. To get good with the car, or taxi number 100 of metro Moskovskaya (stop behind Lenin monument), in Gatchina, you must get off at stop Uliza Leon ova/Karla Marksa and would rather people ask how to get - walking 7 minutes

  • A very small museum, for 10-20 minutes. It's mentioned that paypass can be used to pay for tickets, but they don't have it in fact.
  • Little castle. Very impressive in wintertime. Good acoustic inside.
  • An amazing place. I advise arriving early, small Palace, for large groups here would be too small. In the locker room, you can take the audio-guide, all exhibits are numbered according to the records.

  • The Palace itself is beautiful, of course, but only on the inside. Don't waste your money on entrance, look there. +1 star for very friendly a cloakroom attendant.
