Beginning of main content

Head to Tsarskoe Selo (also known as Pushkin) and step inside the magnificent, baroque Catherine Palace, former home of Catherine the Great. Wander through ornately decorated ballrooms and feel history spring to life as your expert guide unlocks the secrets of the legendary Amber Room.

Enjoy the scenic drive by private car as you journey back in time to the reign of Catherine the Great and many other Russian tsars who used the palace as their summer retreat.

Wander along its opulently decorated halls and step into the breathtaking Amber Room. Once referred to as the "8th Wonder of the World," the room was created in 1701 using 6 tons of amber. During World War II, the room was looted by Nazi Germany, and the room's contents were lost. After decades of work by Russian craftsmen, the reconstructed Amber Room is now back to its former glory.

Finally, take some time to explore the palace's manicured gardens, which showcase Russia's love affair with landscape gardening during the 18th century. The stunning architecture here is fused elegantly with natural beauty.
