Four hours for you to see another eighteenth-century summer Imperial residence, less official and more homely. One-hour drive will run fast as you will be carried away by so many exciting stories about the palace, the Imperial family and, of course, about what you will see on your way. The palace, a pure exercise in the classical style, was constructed for the Russian emperor Paul and his wife Maria. Cozy and nice palace surrounded by serene and quiet parks. You will really enjoy this poetic and most classical place!
