Pushkin and Catherine`s Palace

Let`s visit Tsarskoe Selo – a beautiful royal summer residence, which is located 20 km outside from St. Petersburg. The centerpiece is the Catherine`s Palace - a splendid example of Russian Baroque style. The palace was built in 1717 as the summer residence of  Catherine I – wife of Peter the Great. In 1752 it was renovated for empress Elizabeth - Peter`s daughter by F.B. Rastrelli, because she found it old-fashioned and small. You will be amazed by its luxurious decoration, interiors and famous Amber room, famed by its beauty and once named «the Eighth wonder of the world» And of course, we will not miss beautiful gardens in the latest styles.

Tour lasts 4-5 hours
