There is the state museum-reserve “Pavlovsk” in the immediate vicinity.
The Palace and Park ensemble of Pavlovsk, created in the heyday of Russian classicism of the late XVIII – early XIX centuries – is a cultural heritage monument under UNESCO protection.
The core of the complex is the Pavlovsk Palace which used to be the summer Palace of Paul I.
The Park adjoining to the Palace occupies an area of about 600 hectares on both sides of the Slavyanka river, which makes it one of the largest landscape parks in Europe.
The Palace and Park were being built over 50 years by three generations of architects and designers: Cameron, Brenna, Quarenghi, Voronikhin, Rossi.
Another world-famous Palace and Park complex “Tsarskoye Selo” is just 6 km from the Castle.
