The ensemble of palaces and parks, Tsarskoye Selo (Tsar’s Village in English) is a true paragon among the summer residences of the Russian emperors – the Romanovs and a UNESCO heritage site. In approximately one hour drive from St. Petersburg, the Catherine Palace awaits you in its glory.
The Catherine Palace astonishes visitors with the golden baroque interiors belonging to the epoch of Empress Elizabeth, Peter the Great’s daughter. Can you imagine that here the Empress could host up to 3000 guests for dinner?
On this excursion you will admire the splendor of Golden enfilade, including the Crimson Pilaster Parlor, the Grand Hall, and definitely the true jewel of this place – the Amber Room. It took around 6000 kilogram of amber to reconstruct the room looted and lost by Nazis in the World War II. Its intricate combination of gold, mirror and amber creates the unforgettable image of opulence, grandeur and craftsmanship.
Neighboring the Catherine Palace, Catherine Park spreads out with its baroque and neoclassical style pavilions, Cameron Gallery and the famous lake. Our experienced guide will take you for a stroll around with beautiful and picturesque places.
