The most beautiful suburb of St.Petersburg
Time consuming until you're actually in the palace!
In a nutshell
This is interesting ,inside and outside of palace.
There is a small selfservice-restaurant inside of the Katherine Palace in Tsarskoe Selo / Pushkin at a place where only people with a valid ticket can go. They have nice, round tables with tablecloth that add a lot to the atmosphere, see my main photo.
The windows are facing the park at the backside of the palace.
Favorite Dish: I had some coffee and applecake, that was fine and also not more expensive than other places in St. Petersburg. In my 3rd pic you see a greek salad and some sandwiches,that salad also tastes really fine in Russia.

Tsar's fabulous eggs return to Russia
February 6, 2004
Russian oil and metals baron Viktor Vekselberg
has bought the Forbes family collection of Faberge Russian
Imperial Easter Eggs and other pieces for more than
$US90 million ($SA118 million), months before Sotheby's
was to auction them.
The nine eggs and 180 other Faberge treasures collected
by the late publisher Malcolm Forbes were to have been
sold in New York on April 20-21.
Mr Vekselberg quickly moved to return them to Russia.
A spokesman said the eggs would be displayed in
Moscow and St Petersburg then regionally.
Faberge eggs, considered a standard for rare treasures
were first commissioned by Tsar Alexander III from the
House of Faberge in 1885 as Easter gifts for his wife,
Tsarina Maria Feodorovna. The tradition continued for
30 years in the Romanov imperial family.
