CATHERINE PALACE

 
  {short description of image}  
 

This gate is an exit to the grounds of the Catherine Palace. A multitude of vendors have set up shops on the far side to sell all manner of souvineers for tourists. In Elizabeth's and Catherine's eras this was the kitchen for the Hermitage located nearby. It was constructed in 1775 beside the French garden.
