Stop At: Pavlovsk State Museum, Sadovaya St 20, Pavlovsk, St. Petersburg 196621 Russia
Visitors can witness the opulent splendor of the State Bedroom with its lavishly decorated bed, painted walls and elegant chandelier. The Throne Room (formerly the Dining Room) is famous for its excellent acoustics and unique plafond (ceiling painting) by Pietro Gonzaga. The palace, although smaller and less ornate than those at Tsarskoye Selo and Peterhof, has the feel of a stylish country home, whose inhabitants you can almost imagine have just left for an afternoon of hunting in the palace park.
Much of Pavlovsk's charm is derived from its wonderful landscape park. Located along the picturesque valley of the Slavyanka River, the extensive park is dotted with small pavilions and architectural follies, including the Temple of Friendship, the Colonnade of Apollo, the pavilion of the Three Graces, the Dairy Farm and the Rose Pavilion. Johan Strauss performed with an orchestra in the building of the Musical Station in the park.

Visit the superb palace and park ensemble, dating from the late 18th to the 19th century. Pavlovsk was a summer residence of the Russian emperor Paul I and his family. Its architects were amongst the greatest of the period: Cameron, Brenna, Quarenghi, Voronikhin and Rossi. The Palace's interiors reveal a multitude of artistic and architectural influences and include an Egyptian Vestibule, the Italian Hall under the main Palace dome, featuring classical Roman sculptures, a Greek Hall filled with luxurious French furnishings and Paul's War Hall, demonstrating his fascination with all things military.
