Chateau de Versailes or Peter The Great Palace?

They aren't remotely near each other, so what difference does it make -- it's not like you can decide to go to one versus the other on a trip.

I've been to both. Both are beautiful. I'd rate them as comparable. But I'm with Christina - they're not close to one another. Are you making a trip decision based on that? Just curious.

They're similar in some ways - the baroque interiors with all the gold and decadence. I think you'll enjoy Versailles even after having been the Peter's place. It's fun to compare and see how the former so clearly influenced the latter.
