#3 of 56 in Parks in St. Petersburg
Explore the old hunting grounds of former tsars at Pavlovsk Palace, the home once belonging to Paul I featuring a large green space with an aviary, trails, and gardens. As you walk through the 607 hectare (1,500 acre) park, you'll pass landscaped gardens, bridges, ponds, rivers, and monuments. Empress Catherine II gave the land to her son, Paul I, and his wife and child in 1777. Construction on the palace began in 1781, and the couple traveled around Europe for years collecting objects to fill their new home. You can tour the interior of the house and view its ornate furniture and artwork.

  • After Catherine Palace this Palace looks rather modest, but the advantage is silence and a small number of people. The park entrance is worth 120 rubles, after 19.00 to 23.00 and free.

  • Quietly, calmly, little people. Tame squirrels take food from hands. Entrance fees total ₽ 100 (cash only). Of all the suburban parks that I like most of all. Highly recommend. From just 20 minutes to Kupchino train (₽ 41), it is possible to go by bus, but more expensive (70 ₽).

  • Once you get that done. A lot of other palaces and surrounding States would go hours tying up scarce if skip needs. If you want a guided tour so I'm recommending a thorn.

  • This palace is stunning. It somehow resembles Louvre in France.
  • Beautiful, full of history and art
  • A gothic Palace of the Baroque Catherine Palace and a totally different idea,. In the glittering, are beautiful. Ticket Office is the front-left of the main gate. Pass the bar holding the ticket before entering the Palace front door. Had handed shoe covers and then deposit the coat in Clark. WC is. Organization, 30 people is divided into two groups (get 2 guides). Souvenir shop and. Mid-February is rattling the unparalled.
