  • Surrounded by greenery, this "country house" is of a magnitude and a pomp worthy of its founder. In this there is also the famous "Amber Room", perfectly made up. Halls and lounges, with tables set and clothes in view. To see.

  • If you have the opportunity to visit the Museum yourself, you never take excursions with the crowd! Insanely long queue on the first floor while waiting for permission to climb to the top. The whole excursion took 15 minutes my:)! We are not along sedately from Hall to Hall, and fled in a trail guide as possessed, without even really understand what, where and how:(.
