Talk about an abundance of gold leaf! This palace is incredible! As you go from one room to another, you are just amazed at the decorations. Of course the highlight is the amber room. Beautifully restored!

On trip from Explorer of the Seas, the gold leaf in the ballroom is something else. The facade beats any other palace I have seen and the gardens are beautiful. This is 100% not to be missed.

Catherine’s Palace was a beautiful place to visit. A blue, white and gold vision of architectural splendor is awaiting you as you enter here gates. Every room is more beautiful then the next highlighted by the famous Amber Room.

We loved exploring the grounds and rooms of the Catherine Palace. It's stunning! We walked to the town center after our tour and were charmed by the people at the shops where we purchased flowers and wine.

Amazing interior - simply stunning. We were lucky enough to visit on a glorious day so the whole experience was fabulous. The guides were pleasant and if they did need to move groups on it was done with a smile - Peterhof Palace take note,
