Pushkin is a pretty, tranquil suburban town which is easy to get to from the centre of St Petersburg by train, car or bus.
The Catherine Palace is worth a visit, but it's just another palace...and honestly you can have enough palaces, even if it is so sumptuous that it is one of the must-sees of a trip to Russia. The (famous) Amber Room is beautiful and interesting, although I was a bit disappointed because I was expecting something really extraordinary.
As I lived in SPB ( StPetersburg) for more than a year I was able to go to Pushkin several times. What I always liked there was the park where I could feed the squirrels on hazelnuts that I bought in the supermarket before going for my walk.
