At Catherine Palace the exterior & the interior of this lavishly decorated building really catch the eye - particularly the spectacular Amber room. After stopping for a hearty traditional lunch at a local restaurant, we'll continue on for a guided tour of the exquisite interior of The Church on Spilled Blood.
