Add To Plan

The summer residence of the imperial family, Catherine's Palace was extensively expanded and renovated over the years, first by Peter's daughter Elizabeth and then by Catherine the Great. Today, the palace is one of St. Petersburg's top attractions and for good reason. Its opulent rooms and galleries are covered in gold gilt and carved plaster, and the rooms are filled with original furniture, chandeliers and marvelous paintings. Some of the highlights on this tour include the superb white marble Grand Staircase and the spectacular baroque Great Hall, designed by esteemed Italian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Be sure to notice the china made for Catherine the Great in the Cavalier's Dining Room, and the original panels from 1709 in the lavish Amber Room. The amazing and aptly named Picture Gallery contains more than 100 paintings by French, Italian, Dutch and Flemish masters, mostly from the 17th and 18th centuries. After touring the palace interior, feel free to stroll through Catherine Park, formal gardens decorated with Italian marble statues and baroque pavilions.
