The Pushkin town or Tsarskoye Selo is famed for the majestic Catherine’s palace where Empress Catherine the Great lived and died. Catherine’s palace is an outstanding example of the Russian Baroque style. It is also a stunning royal retreat with worldwide fame. Its main attractions are the mirrored Grand Ballroom and the opulent Amber Room, which is lined with gilded amber wall panels and ornate furniture. The palace was nearly destroyed and the Amber room was stolen by the Nazis during WWII. After decades of work by Russian craftsmen and donations from Germany, the reconstructed palace and later the Amber Room were opened to the public again.

We will continue into the beautiful Catherine Park that surrounds the palace. It consists of two parts – the Regular Park (Old Garden) and the Landscape (English) Park. Catherine Park features many beautiful monuments and pavilions, and magnifies the splendor of the imperial palace.
