About the excursion
In this tour we are going to travel to the city of Pushkin where we will find the gorgeous palace and beautiful gardens. The palace of gold color certainly will dazzle you! It is more than just beautiful. The Palace built in 1717 by order of Catherine I and which was abandoned after her dead.
Built in early Rococo style, it has been renovated and rebuilt several times, the most important reconstruction was in the year 1752 and was organized by order of empress Elizabeth, who ordered to change the demolition and complete reconstruction by a more modern and ostentatious palace. The Palace has more than 100 kg of Gold on its facade.
Later empress Catherine the Great happened to reside in this luxurious palace that did not stop gaining fame by its incredible decoration and luxury not only in the interior but also in the outside. For Catherine the Great the palace seemed ostentatious and she decided to make some changes and to live there permanently. For this occasion she has changed the style of the palace into the Neoclassical style and developed it.
Today the palace is preserved in a spectacular state and not only the exterior but the interior is preserved as at the time of the residence of the Tsars. Although in the XIXth and XXth century the palace suffered pretty much with the Nazis or the Soviets. One of the most tragic moments was when the German army robbed everything built an Amber room, room that was rebuilt and nowadays we can admire it, for the reconstruction was spent aro15 million dollars.
