The palace-and-park ensemble Oranienbaum

The palace-and-park ensemble OranienbaumThe palace-and-park ensemble is situated on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland opposite Kronshtadt (architects D. Fontana and I. Schedel). In 1743 Oranienbaum became the summer residence of the Emperor Paul III. The Fortress Petershtadt with a petite palace was constructed for him by A. Rinaldi. Later he built the Chinese Palace and the Katalnaya Gorka by the order of Catherine the Great. All these buildings combine exquisite style rococo with traces of classicism. Oranienbaum is famous for its landscape parks of the middle of the XIX century. You can visit the Palace of Peter III, the Japanese pavilion of the Grand (Menshikov) Palace, exhibition halls in Kavalersky Block, the Chinese Kitchen and in the main block of the Grand (Menshikov) Palace. The Chinese Palace and the Katalnaya Gorka work till October.
