  • Take an independent view of the Palace. Very impressive interiors, beauty in every detail. Not too much, there is the opportunity to stop and consider each room. I advise you to visit.

  • Not deserved is a popular place for tourists. Very beautiful Palace: decoration, furniture. You can take a tour of the places of the conspiracy and the murder of Rasputin. Ticket office near the Palace. Better see the excursions on the website beforehand.
