Catherine Palace

Место, выбранное для строительства летнего дворца Петром Великим, располагается примерно в часе езды от Петербурга. Дочь Петра императрица Елизавета повелела архитектору Растрелли построить дворец, какого прежде не строил никто. Блистающий роскошью загородный дворец императрицы Елизаветы Петровны потрясал воображение дипломатов и поэтов. Здесь устраивались грандиозные балы и приемы, танцы продолжались всю ночь, а угощение никогда не кончалось.

Следующая императрица на русском престоле, Екатерина Великая, также очень любила жить летом в Царском Селе, и для нее некоторые апартаменты дворца были перестроены. Шедевр архитектуры барокко жестоко пострадал во время войны. Залы елизаветинской и екатерининской эпохи вы увидите во время экскурсии по музею, в том числе и всемирно знаменитую Янтарную комнату.
