Located in Tsarkoe Selo in Pushkin this lavish palace had a number of owners starting in 1752. From Elizabeth (daughter of Catherine 1) to Catherine the Great this takes lavish to a new level!
The amazing 900 ft long Baroque façade and window and ornamented window framings…
The glittering Great Hall with its illuminating mirrors and gilded carvings …
The famous Amber Room (no photos) with its carved reliefs and panels in Florentine mosaics were a gift to Peter the Great and destroyed by the Germans were recreated in all their glory…..a highlight!
To the Concert Hall isolated on an island with a wide open ferry to accommodate the guests; the blue Grotto Pavillon and traditional warm and cold bath houses – these are truly beautiful surroundings….
Whether arriving or departing the Palace in your carriage you did it in style!
