  • Priory Castle in gatchina is a place imbued with a powerful spirit of the history of the times of Paul I. ... especially in night of museums with the torchlight procession there's just unreal-unusually and even mystically. Bonfire Knights around with torches .... so intriguing and fascinating that I want to repeat this point in my life again! Extremely small castle with such powerful and large residual positive memories from visiting it at night! Were there in daytime, too everything worthy of admiration, but it was a night to stay there during the Knight's procession-it's just aerobatics experience!

  • In anntotacii to the history of the Palace it is written that it is "the only monument of the zemlebitnogo construction of the 18th century, in fact, it looks like this is the only such example of architecture in Russia. Besides, this is the main headquarters of the Knights of Malta in Russia (for the time, when the Maltese knights were found in our homeland). In the Palace of amazing speakers, but it is difficult to verify (a piano available, but only for concerts). There is also a staircase in the tower for reviewing environs but not climb, i.e. to the forbidden (except for children with adult worker Museum). So much is possible, but it is forbidden. Interiors, essentially, no. There is an exhibition that includes a few interesting exhibits. In General, the Castle left the impression of a picturesque corner with an interesting history.

  • You can arrive by car and "yards" to get to the castle itself. Cheap tickets-180 rubles includes audioguide. The cons can be attributed to toilet-booth type "John" in the Castle courtyard. the absence of Cafe frustrating, especially in the autumn weather.
