Catherine's Palace, Tsarskoe Selo
« on: January 03, 2009, 06:28:59 PM »
Catherine I, wife of Peter the Great built the Yekaterina's Palace between 1717 and 1723.
The grounds are park-like and beautiful contrasts of nature and palace, but the inside of the palace is remarkable, including the reconstruction of the famous Amber Room in 2003.

Tsarskoe Selo, now also called  Pushkin is located in the suburbs of St. Petersburg, a bit further out than Peterhof.
