Overview Overview

Enjoy the tour to Catherine Palace and one of the area's most stunning former summer palaces without the crowds. Embark on a small-group (limited to 16-18) guided exploration of this former Imperial residence, a grand property that was left completely gutted―but renovated extensively―after WWII. Wander its opulent halls and visit rooms such as the Amber Room, painstakingly recreated with amber panels, gold leaf and mirrors in a process that took more than two-decades. Afterward, spend time strolling in Catherine Park and learning about its impressive landscaping.

Your will learn the history of the palace construction and redesign by leading imperial architects, be amazed at the amount of destruction caused during the Second World War, learn about the tedious restoration process and hear the story of the famous Amber Room, how it disappeared and how it was newly recreated by talented amber craftsmen in the local workshops of Trsaskoye Selo.

Tour starts at 09:00 a.m. and at 15:00 p.m.
