The Catherine Palace is a Rococo palace located in the town of Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin), 30 km south of St. Petersburg, Russia. It was the summer residence of the Russian tsars.

North side - carriage courtyard: all the stucco details sparkled with gold until 1773, when Catherine II had gilding replaced with olive drab paint.

The residence originated in 1717, when Catherine I of Russia hired German architect Johann-Friedrich Braunstein to construct a summer palace for her pleasure. In 1733, Empress Elizabeth commissioned Mikhail Zemtsov and Andrei Kvasov to expand the Catherine Palace. Empress Elizabeth, however, found her mother's residence outdated and incommodious and in May 1752 asked her court architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli to demolish the old structure and replace it with a much grander edifice in a flamboyant Rococo style. Construction lasted for four years, and on 30 July 1756 the architect presented the brand-new 325-meter-long palace to the Empress, her dazed courtiers, and stupefied foreign ambassadors.

More than 100 kilograms of gold were used to gild the sophisticated stucco façade and numerous statues erected on the roof.In front of the palace a great formal garden was laid out. It centers on the azure-and-white Hermitage Pavilion near the lake, designed by Mikhail Zemtsov in 1744, remodeled by Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli in 1749 and formerly crowned by a grand-gilded sculpture representing The Rape of Persephone. The interior of the pavilion featured dining tables with dumbwaiter mechanisms. The grand entrance to the palace is flanked by two massive "circumferences", also in the Rococo style. A delicate cast-iron grille separates the complex from the town of Tsarskoe Selo. Although the palace is popularly associated with Catherine the Great, she actually regarded its "whipped cream" architecture as old-fashioned. When she ascended to the throne, a number of statues in the park were being covered with gold, in accordance with the last wish of Empress Elizabeth, yet the new monarch had all the works suspended upon being informed about the expense. In her memoirs she censured her predecessor's reckless extravagance:

"The palace was then being built, but it was the work of Penelope: what was done today, was destroyed tomorrow. That house has been pulled down six times to the foundation, then built up again till it was brought to its present state. The sum of a million six hundred thousand rubles was spent on the construction. Accounts exist to prove it; but besides this sum the Empress spent much money out of her own pocket on it, without ever counting".
To gratify her passion for antique and Neoclassical art, Catherine employed the Scottish architect Charles Cameron, who not only refurbished the interior of one wing in the Neo-Palladian style then in vogue, but also constructed the personal apartments of the Empress, a rather modest Greek Revival structure known as the Agate Rooms and situated to the left of the grand palace. Noted for their elaborate jasper decor, the rooms were designed so as to be connected to the Hanging Gardens, the Cold Baths, and the Cameron Gallery —three Neoclassical edifices constructed to Cameron's designs. According to Catherine's wishes, many remarkable structures were erected for her amusement in the Catherine Park. These include the Dutch Admiralty, Creaking Pagoda, Chesme Column, Rumyantsev Obelisk, and Marble Bridge.


upon Catherine's death in 1796, the palace was abandoned in favour of Pavlovsk Palace. Subsequent monarchs preferred to reside in the nearby Alexander Palace and, with only two exceptions, refrained from making new additions to the Catherine Palace, regarding it as a splendid monument to Elizabeth's wealth and Catherine II's glory. After the Great Fire of 1820, Alexander I engaged Vasily Stasov to refurbish some interiors of his grandmother's residence in the Empire style. Twenty years later, the magnificent Stasov Staircase was constructed to replace the old circular staircase leading to the Palace house church. Unfortunately, most of Stasov's interiors—specifically those dating from the reign of Nicholas I—have not been restored after the destruction caused by the Germans during World War II.

When the German forces retreated after the siege of Leningrad, they intentionally destroyed the residence. leaving only the hollow shell of the palace behind. Prior to World War II, Soviet archivists managed to document a fair amount of the interior, which proved of great importance in reconstructing the palace.

Although the largest part of the reconstruction was completed in time for the Tercentenary of St. Petersburg in 2003, much work is still required to restore the palace to its former glory.

کاخ کاترین و باغ الکساندر در شهر پوشکین روسیه
این مجموعه در 30 کیلمتری جنوب شهر سنت پترزبورگ واقع و از طریق متروی مسکواسکایا و سپس یک اتوبوس میتوان به شهر پوشکین یعنی محل استقرار این مجوعه که شامل کاخ کاترین اتاق کهربا چندین موزه و باغ الکساندر میباشد رفت. ورودی باغ کاخ 250 روبل و ورودی سایر موزه ها نیز همین رقم میباشد یک روز کامل از 10 صبح تا 5 بعد از ظهر برای بازدید کامل مجموعه کافی است اتاق کهربا بسیار دیدنی است

*******
کاخ کاترین یا دهکده تزارها قصر باشکوهی است که در شهر پوشکین در 30 کیلومتری جنوب سنت پترزبورگ واقع شده است. این کاخ عمارت منحصر به فرد که به جرات می‌توان آن را مجلل‌ترین و با شکوه ترین بنای شهر سنت پترزبورگ نامید یکی از آثار گردشگری خارق العاده دنیا محسوب می‌شود. نمادی کامل از جاه طلبی‌های خاندان سلطنتی روسیه که از حیث ارزش آثار هنری و زیبایی منحصر به فرد آثار شاخصی مانند کاخ ورسای در فرانسه را پشت سر گذاشته است. قصر با شکوه کاترین، گالری کامرون، پارک زیبای کاترین همراه با دریاچه مصنوعی آن، قصر و پارک الکساندر از جمله مهم‌ترین قسمت‌های این محل هستند.
پتر کبیر در سال ۱۷۰۸ این منطقه را به همسر خود هدیه داد. طی سال های ۱۷۱۷ تا ۱۷۲۳ با دستور کاترین اول، برانشتین معمار بزرگ روس قصری سنگی در آن احداث نمود و چون قصد داشت این قصر را به عنوان هدیه‌ای غیر منتظره به پتر کبیر اهدا کند، بودجه بسیار زیادی را برای آن هزینه کرد.پس از بازگشت پتر کبیر از میدان نبرد، به جای خوشحالی کاترین را بسیار سرزنش نمود. طی سال‌های ۱۷۵۲ تا ۱۷۵۶ دختر پتر کبیر، الیزابت اول معمار ایتالیایی دربار راسترلی را برای توسعه کاخ به یادبود مادرش به خدمت گرفت. قصر بزرگی که امروزه در دهکده تزارها قرار دارد، حاصل زحمات ایشان است.

در سال ۱۹۳۷ به مناسبت یکصدمین سال فوت پوشکین، شاعر بزرگ و معروف روس این مکان به شهر پوشیکن تغییر نام پیدا کرد و تا امروز هم به همین نام معروف است. بدون تردید یکی از دیدنی‌ترین نقاط این قصر اتاق کهربا است.تمام وسایل این اتاق از قبیل میز و صندلی و تزئینات دیوار و سقف از سنگ کهربا ساخته شده است و بازدیدکنندگان بسیاری را از تمام نقاط جهان به خود جلب کرده است. لازم به ذکر است در حمله آلمان‌ها به روسیه تمامی کهرباهای آن به سرقت رفت اما اتاق طی ۲۴ سال با سه تن كهربا بازسازی شد. این کاخ یکی از برترین جاذبه‌های گردشگری سن پترزبورگ است. در ادامه بیشتر از آن می‌خوانید.

در مرکز پارک دریاچه‌ای مصنوعی به یادبود پیروزی ارتش روسیه بر نیروی دریایی عثمانی در سال ۱۷۷۰ در دریای سیاه ساخته شده است. در سال های ۱۷۹۲ تا ۱۸۰۰ قصر الکساندر به این مجموعه اضافه شد.
