The palace and park at Gatchina date back to the time of Empress Catherine II.
The Gatchina palace was built by A. Rinaldi in 1766 - 1781 and was reconstructed twice afterwards.

Gatchina, situated 45 kilometers from Saint Petersburg, is included in the 'brilliant' ring of the historic parks around the former imperial capital. The palace has always looked unusual to Russian spectators and in the XVIII century people affirmed with some exaggeration that it was built "in the English castle style". The building has ten towers and an underground passage. The Interiors of the palace are refined and majestic. The palace is surrounded with wonderful and extensive parks.
