Visit of Catherine Palace with Famous Amber Room


The 8-th wonder of the world is situated in Catherine Palace, in the town of Pushkin. Do you want to find it? So book this tour and you surely see Amber Room-the Prussian present to Russian Tsar Peter. In this trip you will know about the life of the royal family in the palace: what dishes they preferred, what dances were popular, etc. We also walk in the huge park which has become a mixture of different styles: from French to Chinese.
Combining the museum with the park, you will also have enough time to relax.
In the end like a "dessert" to this tour we will have a chance to see the original royal ceremonial and former carriages which belonged to Romanov family (to Catherine II and Alexander II, for example).
