On our tour you will admire the Golden enfilade, including the Grand Hall, the Crimson Pilaster Parlor and of course the gem of the Catherine Palace – the Amber Room.
Besides the Palace, our guide will take you around the beautiful Catherine Park of Tsarskoe Selo, where you will admire the baroque and classical style pavilions, Cameron Gallery and the famous Tsar’s village lake.

Please book as far in advance as possible.
This Palace is getting more popular with city guests year by year which makes it rather busy during high-season.The selected start time can not be 100% guaranteed even with advance booking. On some occasions - when there are lots of cruise ships in the city - the Palace may confirm an entry after 1 pm.
During high season one may expect a line at the entrance to the Palace due to an increasing number of tourists and tourist groups that visit it.
For many dates during high season, we are able to secure an early entry, before official opening hours, thus reducing time spent on lining at the entrance (though one should not expect a completely free access to the Palace even with this option).
If interested in this option, please book "Early admission to Catherine Palace – Tour start time at 8-15 am" optional extra when with booking the tour.
For guests with children under 6 y.o.: if there are 2 or 5 adults and 1 or more children in your party it will require a car upgrade to allow comfortable seating for everyone (and child security seats) for which we will bill you separately.
For students & student groups: if you're booking for a student group, please include a "single" ticket for one participant; other participants will need a "student" ticket. Alternatively, consider getting a "group" ticket for everyone, if it offers a cheaper price. If your are a solo-travelling student, please book with a "single" ticket.
