Catherine Palace Tour restrictions applying during high season & holidays :

* Tour restrictions' start depends on visitor flow. As it peaks, the palace tour has to be restricted with three routes, one available to individual visitors and organized pre-booked groups, the others to groups only or closed as incapable of high flow. The restrictions usually start on weekends in early May, then apply on weekdays too as visitor flow grows, and last until it lowers in September. Throughout a year, the same restrictions apply during national and school holidays, whenever visitor flow becomes too high to the museum's capacity.
