Hundreds of pounds of gold used in its sumptuous décor and the world famous Amber room, often called the eighth wonder of the world make this palace and absolute must-see. Continue into the royal Catherine’s park offering magnificent views of the imposing palace andhalf dozen cozy pavilions.
Now follow westward to Peterhof-the former Royal residence on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, famous for its palaces, parks and even more so for a unique system of over 150 fountains scattered on the vast premises of the Lower fountain park. Marvel at the Grand Cascade of fountains, and the grandeur of the Grand Palace rising above. Compare it to the elegant coziness and modesty of one the minorpalaces in the Lower Park.
