  • Tsarskoe Selo is more interesting than Peterhof. The gardens are much more extensive, diverse, peaceful. However, in August there is a crazy world... When we finally arrived at the end of the interminable line outside, it must still queue inside to buy tickets. In the final 2:45 tail to visit as 8 parts for 1000 roubles (without the audioguide). Staff does not speak so much English, nobody asks you if you want the audio guide, no one tells you where is the entry for individual visitors... There are 3 different courses, individual visitor I think we have the shortest... Because of the groups (or should I say herds), sometimes you have to wait in a room that the stream calms down so that personnel allow us to circulate... that sprout in all directions, it's hellish... No freedom of movement. I spent my afternoon to trample... On the other hand, the few pieces views are sublime. Too bad that the photos are prohibited in the amber given the price of the ticket and the endless waiting room... In short, some unsung museums are sometimes more interesting than these great palaces crowded world.

  • Beautiful and well maintained park. Didn't like the Organization of the work of the Catherine Park, very uncomfortable to go from one object to another, the output is too far from the main attractions. Alexander Palace on reconstruction.
