St. Petersburg offers much to see and you can find most of its prominent sights in the city center.
However, two must-see sites and tours are located on the outskirts of the city – Catherine Palace and Peterhof.
This specific tour takes you to Catherine Palace located at Tsarskoe Selo (the Tsar’s Village).
Catherine Palace was a gift from Peter the Great to his wife, Ekaterina I. During World War II it was occupied by German forces, where they orchestrated the Siege of Leningrad. As the German army retreated from the city they blew up the palace, however during the 50 years that followed, the palace has been carefully restored to its original state with grandeur, including its famous Amber Room.
