  • Located on the banks of the Neva, opposite from Herimtage, on the University Embankment; It is considered as the first stone building of St. Petersburg, besides that not much to see. The interiors...  more »
  • It's on Vasilyevsky Island. I wouldn't see it if I had limited time. It's an older home and did have some interesting artifacts. I liked it, but I had 2 weeks in St Petersburg. Don't see it if...  more »
  • This Palace is quite small without any architecture nor art interesting objects. Though, this one should be considered within it's timeline which refers to the very first years of Saint P foundation.....  more »

  • I would very much like to go here again after they have a proper restoration going and completed. I did like it but there needs to be more that the public can see and enjoy. It is quite the interesting place to see and I hope everyone will go there. Surprised there were very few people there.
  • Very nice and interesting palace which I think is a bit overlooked. It is not as imposing as others but still it is worth a visit. The interiors are good and it gives you an understanding of what life looked like for an aristocrat during Peter the great reign
  • An extraordinary exhibit of a Russian high life of the first quarter of the 18th century. The exposition is superb: the restaurateurs did an amazing job with this place, bringing it back to its original look! The entry fee is more than fair; the museum offers guided tours and audioguides that are top quality. Every room has an information plaque that are a pleasure to read: even if you don't follow a tour guide you'll still learn a lot. The plaques are in Russian and English. Also the museum workers are very friendly and knowledgeable and always happy to answer your questions, guys you are the stars!! ♥️♥️ And also they have a nice cafe in the garden if you want to take a break mid-tour. :) Невероятно классный музей с потрясающими экскурсоводами и работниками. Ревставраторы постарались на славу, каждая комната - произведение искусства! Застряла в этом музее на 4 часа и не хотела уходить. Очередей практически нет, посетителей не очень много, так что бродить по шикарным богато убранным анфиладам комнат крайне приятно. А работники музея просто душки - они не только отвечали на мои вопросы, но и рассказывали мне о процессе реставрации, о самом дворце и о предметах быта. Ребята, вы просто чудо, я в восторге от вас, спасибо вам большое! ♥️ Также во дворике есть очень приятное кафе, где можно посидеть отдохнуть, выпить кофе и поесть. Очень довольна своим визитом!
  • Very lovey and relaxed palace tour. Great to see now the rich lived in the 18th century.
  • Nice and quick to visit. An hour visit should be sufficient.
