What travelers say:

A must on any visit to St Petersburg. A superbly maintained historical beautiful Palace that is visited by umpteen thousands each day . Be prepared for some hours in queues even on a tour . Tour guides will tell you you get in quicker with them .... you don’t .The Amber room ( no photos under any circumstances ) is worth the visit alone.Get local transport cards for bus trolly bus and metro ( 5 days 431rub=46cny) and save a fortune.Do both of the Palace but one tour is still great.
