Journey back in time as you walk in the footsteps of prominent tsars at 2 of the country's most impressive palaces. Start in the town of Pushkin and explore the beautiful former home of Catherine the Great before venturing to the glorious Pavlovsk Palace, with its serene, tranquil gardens.

Your journey begins in the suburb of Pushkin at magnificent, baroque Catherine Palace. Wander along its opulently decorated halls and step into the breathtaking Amber Room. Once referred to as the "8th Wonder of the World," this extravagant room was created in 1701 using 6 tons of amber.

Traveling just 5 miles (8 km) brings you to the splendid Pavlovsk Palace. After viewing the lavish interior with its Egyptian, Italian, and Greek influences, enjoy a leisurely stroll around the stunningly landscaped grounds. The palace estate is perched on a hill overlooking an English-style park, complete with a peaceful river flowing through it. This perfect setting once welcomed Johann Strauss to perform with his orchestra.
