The interior decoration of the early XVIII century style offers a nice selection of Russian and Western-European paintings, decorative and applied art of the late ÕVII - beginning of the XVIII centuries, as well as personal belongings of Peter the Great. The excursion includes a walk around the Summer Garden laid out by the order of Peter the Great in 1704.
