This Masterpiece of the Russian Baroque style was built as the Empress residence. Lately Catherine Palace and its surroundings were used as backdrops for BBC’s adaptation of Tolstoy’s War and Peace. Take a chance to feel yourself part of the Russian imperial court!
Amber Room in Catherine Palace
The legendary Amber Room was mystically lost during the World War II. Now it is fully reconstructed and became the main attraction of the Catherine Palace.
Catherine Park in Tsarskoe selo

Dutch master gardeners arranged the Garden in the 1720s on three terraces in front of the imperial palace initially. Later on, Catherine II extended the territory and decorated the park with other splendid building and fine monuments to show Europe the greatness of her reign.

Located on the banks of Slavianka river Pavlovsk Park is a picturesque and highly poetic piece of work of masters of the late 18th -early 19th centuries. Groves and woods, numerous ponds, seventeen pavilions, twelve bridges across Slavianka, exquisite statues create a feeling of harmony.

Originally constructed by Charles Cameron in austere and elegant classicism style the residence was enlarged and lavishly redecorated by Vicenzo Brenna after Paul I ascended the throne.
