The Catherine Palace is a former summer residence of Russian Emperors. In the beginning of the 18th century Peter the Great gave this land to his wife Catherine the 1st. And the 1st Catherine Palace was built for her. It was her private residence. In the middle of the 18th century Elizabeth made it her official summer residence. By that time the aristocratic families built the summer mansions nearby and that little settlement got the name Tsarskoe Selo which means “Czar’s village”. It was official summer residence that was used by all Russian Emperors till 1917. Then the Imperial palaces and parks were nationalized and turned to the museums.
After Catherine palace we will drive to Pavlovsk to see the palace of Paul the 1st. This is superb palace-and-park ensemble of the late XVIII - beginning of the XIX centuries which was used as a summer residence of the Russian emperor Paul 1 and his family. The landscape park, one of the largest in Europe, covers the area of 600 ha. The works on the palace-and-park ensemble on the winding banks of the Slavyanka river lasted for 50 years.
