Tsarskoye Selo: Catherine Park is a palatial park that features both a landscape park and a formal garden.
The formal park is located right behind Catherine Palace.
It's well-maintained and characterized by its box hedges' and alleys' rigid symmetry. The landscape park comprises a wide range of beautiful monuments and buildings – the highlights being Dutch-style boathouses, the Baroque Grotto, and the Marble Bridge. The great pond, at its center, has a small island.
The island has a concert hall and several memorials that pay homage to Russia's naval conquest over the Turks. There are ferries that take you to the island.Places nearby:
