CATHERINE PALACE

 
  {short description of image}  
 

The Hermitage, located directly opposite the main palace down a long mall. The Baroque style is by Rastrelli in 1756 for Elizabeth. She liked to entertain small groups of guests here. It is in poor condition now. Inside there was a special mechanism for lifting the dining table and guests to the upper floor for dinner, after which the table was lowered and the room converted into a ball room.
