We visited in late July was very crowded thousands of people you are pushed from room to room but was very beautiful I would recommend visiting it not on high traffic times. Also bring coins pay toilet only.

I'm sorry I don't remember how long it took to get to Pavlovsk Palace because we were with a guide, didn't drive ourselves and made other stops along the way. One museum in town that we particularly liked was the Defense... More
