Experience the grandeur of the Russian Baroque palace of Catherine the Great and unlock the secrets of the Amber Room – one of the world’s wonders. On this 5-hour tour you’ll travel from St. Petersburg to the town of Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin).

The Amber Room of the Catherine Palace is a chamber decorated with amber panels, gold leaf, and mirrors. Originally created in the 18th century, the panels disappeared during WWII. In 2003 the panels were recreated and the Amber Room reconstructed.

Step into the world of the Empresses Elizabeth and Catherine as you walk through the gilded ballrooms and imperial halls, and marvel at the luxury of the decoration. All Russian monarchs lived, worked, granted audiences, and held diplomatic receptions, gala balls, and masquerades in the gorgeous palace halls.

The park that surrounds the palace is a spectacular work of Russian gardening art of the 18th and 19th centuries, which combines masterpieces of architecture with the stunning beauty of nature.

This tour can be combined with a visit to Pavlovsk to see the imperial estate and park complex of Paul I, the son of Catherine the Great.
