Catherine's Palace

It is a Rococo palace located in the town of Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin), 30 km south of St. Petersburg. It was the summer residence of the Russian tsars. The residence originated in 1717 when Catherine I hired German architect Johann-Friedrich Braunstein to construct a summer palace for her pleasure. Construction lasted for four years, and on 30 July 1756 the architect presented the brand-new 325-meter-long palace to the Empress.

Amber Room

It is a reconstructed chamber decorated in amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors, located in the Catherine's Palace. Constructed in the 18th century in Prussia, the original Amber Room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during World War II. Before its loss, it was considered an "Eighth Wonder of the World". A reconstruction was installed in the Catherine's Palace between 1979 and 2003.
