Discover one of the most impressive imperial residences next to St Petersburg with a remarkable story behind. Catherine’s palace was a gift from Peter I to his second wife Catherine, and it developed from a cozy and private home to the gala residence of all Russian emperors. This palace is particularly famous for the miracle of the Amber Room – a true masterpiece in itself, having an incredible history of creation, loss and resurrection.
We will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel in the morning and take you to the scenic drive through the beautiful countryside around St Petersburg. You will also see some of the city’s historic center on the way, and hear the stories told by our professional guide. Then you arrive at the palace and feel the opulence and luxury just looking at it from the outside. However, we will take you to see the interiors, and you will definitely be taken away by its innumerous golden halls. You will also have a great opportunity to learn about the Russian Tzars, their triumph and decay. For sure, you will see the wonder of the Amber Room with your own eyes and have a chance to be impressed with its beauty and brilliance. After the tour around the palace you take a stroll through the delicate park, which combines the French style, looking like Versailles, with the English style, resembling a natural forest. Enjoy the fresh air and colorful flowers, and you can always treat yourself with an ice-cream or a picnic on the grass. When you are finished with your imperial experience, we will take you back to your hotel or drop you off in the city wherever you ask.
