The Catherine Palace is definitely a must see if you have the time. Pushkin Town was the home of Russian Writer Alexander Pushkin and is 27kms from St Petersburg. The baroque style Catherine Palace, built for Catherine the Great, was left in ruins by the Germans at the end of WW II but today is a masterpiece of restoration. The facade features golden domes and blue and white detailing, while the interior gleams and glitters with mirrors, chandeliers and cherubs.
