I agree they are magnificent. I was there in 2002 and saw many of them and the images remain with me of just what wonderful places they were.

I was told that many of the ones in St Petersburg were destroyed during WWII but were rebuilt by the Soviets as a tribute to the builders who had originally built them and not to the royals themselves.

If you get a chance to go and see them do so.

Kolomenskoe is gorgeous! My SIL is Russian so she and my brother got married there. Interesting though that in the video the colours are quite greenish whereas in reality the building is dark and light brown wood with bright green roof. The rooms inside are beautiful, too. Very unusual, very colourful.

I have never been, but they say that St Petersburg is more beautiful than Paris.

Well, I've never been to Paris so I can't say, but StP. is definitely worth visiting. I've never seen anything compared to those palaces and jewellery.

The most popular and grandiose palace (aside from the Hermitage) is probably Peterhof (Petergof) about half an hour by car away.

Visiting Pushkin's flat and the Jusupovkij Palace (were Rasputin was murdered) on the Fontanka is of course also a must.

Personally I also liked the Michailovskij Dvorez (Palace) very much. Honestly I was a bit disappointed by the amber room. It's much greater on the pictures.

Kadriog is gorgeous. Even the grounds around the park are well maintained. It's small compared to the other Romanov palaces but I adored it.

The historical parts of St. Petersburg are like a fairy tale. That is a very well maintained city.

Mr. Beaverhausen and I were in St Petersburg 2 years ago.  So I’m going to weigh in here and say that they are both very beautiful, but I give the edge to Paris. St Petersburg looks like a jewel box with its rebuilt city center, but it’s all very new and looked more Disney to me than Russian. I loved the Amber Room and The Hermitage, but I love the history and ancient architecture of Paris more, and the fact that, in comparison, tourists can more safely walk around without getting mugged.  Also, pictures and T shirts of Putin were everywhere in St Petersburg.
