For two centuries the Tsarskoye Selo was a grand imperial summer residence. The Tsarskoye Selo palace and park ensemble is a superb monument of world-ranking architecture and garden-and-park design dating from the eighteenth to early twentieth centuries. The compositional centre of the ensemble is the Great Tsarskoye Selo or Catherine Palace – a splendid example of the Russian Baroque. Visitors are enraptured by the sumptuous décor of the Great Hall and the Golden Enfilade of state rooms that includes the world-famous Amber Room.

Friedrich Hartmann Barisien  
One of the finest interiors in the palace was that of the Amber Room. Its amber decor which was the work of Andreas Schluter (1709) originally belonged to Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia The Russian Emperor was received there with great honour and this room was presented to him by Fredrich William as a diplomatic gift. In return of the Amber Room Peter presented Fridrich 55 guardsmen. During the II World War the Amber Room was taken away by the Nazi; after the war our restorers began making a new one. Eight tones of amber were used to make a new Amber Room.
