Rasputin ruins it! The fascination with Rasputin draws large crowds. As a consequence the palace is packed with tourists and tour guides shouting to be heard over one another in a variety of languages. It is also hard to see, et alone enjoy, what is obviously and interesting palace. If you do go I suggested the off season is the best if you don't like throngs of tourists snapping selfies!
