Catherine's Palace and Park of Pushkin (also known as Tsars Village) was one of the official summer royal residences of Russian tsars and tsarinas. It is situated 24 kilometers (15 miles) to the south of St. Petersburg. The lands were presented by Peter I to his wife Catherine I where she decided to build a private palace. Later the palace became the favorite residence of empress Elizabeth I.

Here you’ll see a breath-taking gallery of gala rooms where balls, receptions, and official dinners took place, although it is mostly famous for the Amber room which is sometimes called the 8th wonder of the world. In this room the whole surface of the walls is covered with natural amber.
