This renowned summer residence of the Romanov Tsars is totally different in lay out and style from Peterhof. One definite advantage is that it doesn’t matter, when you plan your Catherine Palace tour: summer, fall, winter and spring all look awfully becoming to this palace and park ensemble. The other advantage is the one-of-a-king Amber room. Of all the world, you can only see it here.

Winter time is my absolute favourite for this palace, as in winter they open the whole palace for visitors, whereas in summer you hardly get to see even half of it. Many small private rooms are closed for summer as huge groups cannot possibly fit in, besides, for crowd control purposes the palace is divided into halves and you can see only one or the other of them. In summer season we guarantee: you will see the Golden Gallery and Amber room with our company. Come in slow season and have the whole Catherine Palace tour and Amber Room visit!
