... it was too cold and grew mushrooms inside due to the high levels of humidity. The gardens were superb and we spend a couple of hours simply walking around them. The palaces were closed today as it was the last day before Summer finishes and they are closing down for the Winter.

... had been done on
Catherine's Palace after the German army set it ablaze when they
vacated it at the end of the war. The amber room was not like
anything that we have ever seen; every inch of the room decorated as
a mosiac with several tons of hand-carved amber pieces. We visited
