Tour the rooms once occupied by Peter the Great and his wife, Catherine, at Summer Garden (Letny Sad) and Summer Palace of Peter I. The simple, Dutch-style mansion houses 14 rooms, including the tsar's study, his bedroom, and the apartments of the empress on the upper floor. The vestibules, oak stairs, and both kitchens are the only elements of the original 18th-century interior. Peruse period paintings, furniture, tapestries, glassware and china, oak panels, engravings, and painted stoves. The permanent exhibit features the clothes and other personal belongings of the royal couple. Take a walk through the summer garden to admire its numerous marble sculptures depicting allegorical, mythological, and historical figures, such as Roman emperors.
