At the "Tsar's Village", or Tsarskoye Selo, you will see the Catherine Palace, a preferred residence of the Tsaritsa Catherine the Great.  The Palace features an abundance of gold in every room but it is the Amber Room that is sure to impress.  Peterhof is an architectural marvel, so often compared to Versailles of France.  You will walk through the fountain park along the banks of the Gulf of Finland and visit the Peterhof Summer Palace, European in it's Grand Style - but undoubtedly Russian.
