    Catherine's Palace - Welcome

    Welcome Band - Catherine's Palace

    As our group of Australian tourists approached the Palace entry steps the band played the iconic Australian tune " Waltzsing Matilda". A nice touch and worth a few roubles in the tin.

    YUSUPOV PALACE THEATRE

    by RACCOON1 Updated Oct 9, 2004

    So the concept of home theatre is nothing new. Here Prince Yusupov could seat 50 of his nearest and dearest for a performance on stage or musical event. Sometimes he would join the cast.

    Visiter des palais c'est un must. Ici la decoration est magnifique. Par example ces rideaux sont très originals. Est ce que je vais les copier pour mon nouveau appartment?
