Information on the location
The Catherine Palace (Russian: Екатерининский Дворец) was the summer residence of the Russian tsars and is located south of St. Petersburg. Catherine I commissioned the palace to be built in 1717. Once Catherine the Great ascended to the throne, she decided to have the palace refurbished due to her dislike for the "whipped cream" style. Catherine was the last tsar to use the palace as a residence, with many preferring the nearby Alexander Palace. The Catherine Palace was badly damaged by German soldiers during their retreat out of Russia in World War II.
