    The Catherine Palace is one of earliest architectural ensembles built in the suburbs of St. Petersburg. It is located on a picturesque site some 15 miles to the south of St. Petersburg, in a town called Pushkin. The historical name of the place is Tsarskoe Selo (the Tsar’s Village) was changed in the Soviet time and the town was called after a famous Russian poet - Alexander Pushkin.

    The Catherine Palace is one of the brightest pearls among other attractions of St. Petersburg. The residence is called after Peter’s wife - Catherine I but the final outlook of the residence was formed in the second half of the 18th century. The initial two-story house was extended and redesigned at Elizabeth Petrovna's time. Final touches to the grandeur of the Catherine Palace and Park were added at the times of Catherine II (Catherine the Great).

    Today, the Catherine Palace remains one of the most frequently visited places in St. Petersburg. The spectacular blue and white facades keep catching the attention of tourists. Not to mention that the interiors of the Catherine Palace are not less impressive. Most luxurious, expensive materials were use for the decoration - gold, silk, expensive types of wood, tiles, porcelain… And, of course, the Amber Room where the walls are entirely covered with real amber.

    During this tour you will visit the Catherine Palace and Park, see the Tsarskoselsky Lyceum (where Pushkin studied) and many other interesting sites. You can add a visit to Pavlovsk palace as an option or combine Catherine Palace+Peterhof.
