When you arrive, take pictures in front of the palace then begin to explore the numerous golden rooms with your guide. Learn about the intrigues of the Czar's court and imagine what it was like to live in this opulent royal residence. Proceed to the Amber room - the gem of the mansion, that contains 6 tonnes of exquisitely crafted amber panels, along with gold leaf decor, and mirrors.
