A real treasure of Catherine Palace was Amber Room. In 1717 by Friedrich William of Prussia presented to Peter the Great inlaid amber panels. In 1755 the Amber Room was designed by Rastrelli, who enriched panels by mosaics and sculptures. During the Second World War the Amber Room dissapeared and now it's completely restored.
