Useful information

Opening hours

Like its model Versailles, which made a huge impression on Peter the Great, the Grand Palace boasts walls decorated with fine gold, polychrome ceilings, precious wood panelling, draperies, mirrors and paintings. Elizabeth embellished it even further, entrusting the job to Rastrelli, who turned it into a Baroque gem. Enjoy the vast and wonderful Ballroom and Throne Room. Admire the gold in the State Room, the ceremonial table in the White Dining Room and the refined Chinese cabinets.
