  • Hear stories of the reckless expenses thrown into its construction

What to Expect
Step into the complex and grandiose world of the Russian monarchy with a visit to the spectacular Catherine’s Palace. Situated to the south of St Petersburg, this imperial summer residence was constructed under the demands of Catherine I of Russia in 1717 and has played host to the Tsars since the 18th Century. Built in the elaborate rococo style of the time, your sights will be overcome by the intricate detailing and lavish colors that make up the palace.

One of the highlights of the tour will be a look inside the extravagant Amber Room. Often referred to as the 8th wonder of the world, this shimmering chamber utilized the use of over 6-tonnes of amber to create wall-to-wall paneling backed with gold leaf and mirrors. It is a beautiful example of late Baroque architecture and will no doubt form a lasting memory on the spectator.

Moving from the interior to the exterior, next the tour will take you on a stroll through the perfectly manicured grounds of Catherine Park. Contemplate the luxurious lives of the aristocracy as you navigate the walkways, bridges, and monuments, which formed the backdrop to many fanciful summers spent at the palace.
