Catherine Palace Trivia

This rococo style palace, which functioned as a summer residence for the tsars, was built at the beginning of the 18th century and later on was gradually expanded and developed till the effort of architects (one of them, by the way, was widely known Bartolomeo Rastrelli) resulted in a magnificent and unbelievably luxuriant building. Not only the exuberant exterior but also the incredibly palatial and sumptuous interior will surprise you with its rich details and aestheticism.
