St.Petersburg

Catherine's Palace

  Pushkin, Sadovaya ul. 7      (+7) 812 465 94 24     24 Mar 2019
Catherine's Palace and the surrounding parks were created by Empresses Elizabeth and Catherine the Great. The palace, with its famous Amber Room, is an impressive post-WWII reconstruction, rebuilt with the help of the Germans. Once regarded as one of the modern “Wonder's of the World”, the newly restored Amber Room is overwhelmingly opulent and a fitting tribute to the extravagant empress who originally commissioned it. The adjoining Cameron Gallery has a magnificent view of the park and the Agate Room.

The parks and gardens surrounding the palace are dotted with many unusual buildings, including a Chinese village, an unusual pyramid structure where Catherine buried her favorite pets, a small Tatar mosque and various little pavilions and summer cottages. It's well worth taking a stroll around the park as well as visiting the palace itself, especially as you have to pay to enter the park (and after that the palace) anyway.
