Catherine Palace is located in Tsar Village (Pushkin), a suburb close to Saint Petersburg and represents the best of Russian royal heritage. Its solemn tranquility will hypnotize you with its grand beauty.
Tsar Village is also tightly connected with life of a famous Russian poet who suffered a tragic death — Alexander Pushkin hence is the suburb’s second name. The first owners of Tsar Village were women: Catherine I, the wife of Peter I, Elisabeth I, their daughter and Catherine II. Elisabeth I, after she had inherited Tsar Village, treated it with special affection and named the palace she commissioned to be built after her mother.
Catherine Palace is an impressive Baroque reconstruction with rooms decorated with gold and mirrors. A visit the breathtaking Amber Room is a tour must inclusion.
