Why Tsarskoe selo attracts tourists

The Tsarskoye Selo palace and park ensemble is a superb monument of architecture and garden design dating from the 18-th to early 20-th centuries. A whole constellation of outstanding architectors, sculptors and painters made the ideas of their crowned clients come to life here. Tsarskoye Selo is a cluster of Baroque and Classical architecture samples. It was the first place in the Russian capital where interiors were decorated in the Moderne (Art Nouveau) style.

In addition to the general immersion in the Catherine’s era, there is another main object that attracts tourists so much: here (in the Catherine Palace) is the legendary Amber Room. Her stories are still legendary and controversial: someone is inclined to believe that the original Amber Room was successfully removed and still exists in private collections; someone is convinced that it is saved, conserved and buried in an unknown place; but most still adhere to the opinion that it was burnt.

The Amber Room was recreated again according to sketches and surviving fragments. To It has been recreated by the three hundredth anniversary of St. Petersburg in 2003, and today it is available to visit for everyone.
