The ferry showed video of the gardens - when we got there, we were not surprised. Nowhere in grounds to get a coffee on a cold day. Maybe better in summer.

A castle built for Peter the Great, the building is well kept with many statues and beautiful fountains and grounds. Was a hazy day, but that didn't stop us from having a great time. The palace is up on a hill with the gardens below....More

I think you could spend a whole day here. We were unfortunate enough to have wet weather but still thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were on a cruise, were bussed out in the morning and back for lunch and so had limited time to explore....More

I have been with not so good westher and is amazing but if you make it in a good weather day, this place is fenomenal. The gardens are a great plus and coming with the hydrofoil makes it all worthy.

I visited the park and fountains. it lasted about 5 hours. if you want to visit all you need for 2-3 days. a superb place where you understand both the wealth of Russia and the reason for the Bolshevik revolution

What you plan makes sense. We went with a driver and it took the best part of an hour. For me the gardens were the highlight. The palace is beautiful but heavily reconstructed. One palace does start to blend with another... More
