Peter the Great ordered to construct the small palace for his wife, future empress Catherine I. In the middle of the 18th century the palace was rebuilt and became the pearl of architecture of that period. The grandeur of the artistic decor of the facades, the moulded decorations, the gilding of architectural and sculptural details, all echoes the majesty and elegance of the interior decoration of the Catherine Palace. The Amber Room, which was presented to Peter I by the Prussian King in 1716, known as the Eight Wonder of the World, used to be in this Palace. The amber ornamentation of this room, missing since 1945, is now being reconstructed by Russian gem carvers. The park of Tsarskoye Selo was the favourite resting place of the Russian Tsars. The avenues lay out around Catherine’s Palace invite you for to walk and see the park pavilions, erected by famous architects and sculptors of Russia.

Day 6:

Today your guide will meet you and take you on a city tour of Moscow including a visit to the world famous St.Basil’s Cathedral. The Red Square has always been the main square in Moscow. It was here that the town criers would run with the Tsar’s decrees, and tell of the Sovereign’s will to the crowds who gathered. On days of great church festivals there would be a religious procession from the Kremlin to red Square, and on such days the whole square would fill with people, and it would have the appearance of an open-air church. It was here that the magnificent cathedrals were built. One of them is the Cathedral of the Intercession of the Mother of God at the Moat. The cathedral was built in the mid-16th century by decree of Ivan the Terrible in honor of one of the wars. The small church of Saint Basil, which was built later on the grave of a God’s fool much respected in Moscow, gave the whole cathedral its second, more widely known name of St. Basil’s cathedral. St. Basil’s cathedral is unique among Moscow’s churches. It is not simply a place where people came to pray, but it is also itself an icon in stone.

Day 7:
