Explore the incredible palaces and parks of the former summer residences of the Russian Czars. The Catherine Palace, built in the Rococo style as a summer residence for Catherine I, is nearly 1km in circumference with elaborately decorated blue-and-white facades that include over 100kg of gold. The interiors are just as extravagant – don’t miss the legendary Amber Room, lined with mosaic panels, mirrors and gold leaf. After lunch, it's on to the ‘Russian Versailles’, magnificent Peterhof Palace with its striking yellow-and-white exterior and gilded trimmings. Peter the Great personally designed the layout of the beautiful 121-hectare park and its spectacular cascading fountains.
