Peterhof was the first of the great Imperial ensembles to be established outside St Petersburg and is our #1 “a must-see” for any first time visitor to St Petersburg.

Catherine Palace (named after Catherine I, wife of Peter the Great) with its blue and white facade (created by Italian architect Rastrelli) decorated by a profusion of atlantes, columns, and pilasters is our second "must see". When entering inside you will find a continuous succession of interconnecting rooms in sumptuous Baroque style and somewhere in the middle of that enfilade is the famous Amber Room which was called by contemporaries “the eighth wonder of the world”
