The Catherine’s Palace was originally built for Catherine the First, wife of Peter the Great, as her personal summer residence. It is located in the famous historical town of Tsarskoe Selo (Tsar’s village), which is approximately 30 kilomiters (23 miles) south of St.Petersburg, about one hour’s driving time. Today it is considered to be the best remaining example of baroque palace architecture from the 1700’s still exiting in St.Petersburg. One of many highlights is the unbelievable, reconstructed Amber Room, where all the walls have been decorated with genuine amber.
The park of the Catherine's palace is beautifully dicorated with flowers and little stones of different colors, which make it more attractive in all the seasons.
