"The famous "amber-room" & a lot more !" Top 5 Page for this destination Pushkin by globetrott

Pushkin Travel Guide: 93 reviews and 299 photos

Pushkin is a great halfdaytrip from St. Petersburg and it really makes sense to calculate a full day, when you want to see ALL of its beauty and not just rush through the palace and the Amberroom / Bernsteinzimmer.

    Fantastic infos and photos! It brings back very good memories ... when I was there in February 1992, in the amber room reconstuction works went on. It seems that the catherine palace looks even greater since I was there.

    it seems it is pity I was here in winter time cause park is better to see in spring or summer time. it seems you haven't any problem to have a shot in the amber room, because in my visit it was prohibitted to make any photo in the room

    I wonder what the Tsars would have thought about so many people traipsing around their palace!

    Yes, Pushkin is among must see places in Russia. Glad you could see and enjoy it. I was there several times and hope come back again. Quite agree with you I also prefer taking my photos and videos than to listen to a guide, haha!
