Get picked up by our guide and enjoy the picturesque road to Catherine Palace, the summer residence of Russian royalty.

During your drive learn why the place is often called “Tsars’ Village” and how many times it was rebuilt from the ground up.

 
Catherine Palace
Take pictures in front of the palace, that was the center of Russian Social life during Catherine’s time.

Try to imagine that all yellow details of outdoor décor were covered with real gold and learn why Catherine the Great ordered to replace the gold with paint.

 
Main Staircase
Walk up the main staircase of the palace, decorated with Chinese porcelain vases, an antique clock and an ancient barometer.

Listen to the story why this interior is so vastly different from all the other rooms in the residence.

 
Dancing hall
Marvel at the opulence of the Grand hall! Find out why every night Catherine was afraid to go to bed and hence danced till early morning.

Ask our guide about what famous celebrities celebrated their weddings and birthday’s here (i.e. Paul McCartney among many others).

 
Golden Enfilade
Marvel at the Russian Baroque style while exploring numerous golden rooms, one more opulent than the other.

Learn the intrigues of the Czar’s court and imagine what it was like to live in this palace.

 
Amber room
Go inside the Amber room – the gem of the residence. Often called – “Eighth Wonder of the World”, the room contains six tonnes of exquisitely crafted amber panels, along with gold leafs and mirrors.

Find out what healing powers this room has, and how much it would cost to make such room in your house.

 
Catherine Park
After exploring the palace take a stroll in the Catherine Park.

Catherine the Great wanted to have the whole world at her fingertips, that’s why you can see pavilions of Greek, Turkish, French, Chinese and other architectural styles.

 
Hermitage Pavilion
On your way to the exit see a small pavilion – Hermitage, where Catherine would hide from her maids and attendants and enjoy the company of her numerous favorites.

Your car will be waiting outside of Catherine park and will take you back to Saint-Petersburg.
