The palace of Catherine has been restored to all its splendor. Although work continues there is more than enough gold gilt trim and artifacts to satisfy even the most insatiable appetite and museum junkie. Crowds can be heavy so be prepared to move slowly behind...More

Hi, the queue of garden is fast, therefore it's not long. visitors should pay money for park and palace separately (you will pay money just for park visiting). The park is so beautiful and enjoyable. have a nice time...
We're visiting Russia mid February 2017, would love some help with Catherine Palace. Silly question but it is open in February 2017 (one site said closed till April) . Can we get the train there and pick up an English speaking guide when we're there we'd like ample time to take a troika ride st nearby Pavlovsk park. Aslo someone mentioned taking a boat there? I've read something about that but are the rivers still frozen ? Anything will help
