Oranienbaum is a residence which was built for the Peter the Great's friend and associate Alexander Menshikov. The complex is notable by its huge size and splendour. There are several palaces open for visitors - Grand Menshikov Palace, Palace of Peter III, Chinese Palace, Kammenoe zalo Pavilion and Katalnaya Gorka (roller coaster) Pavilion. The complex is unique because Oranienbaum wasn't occupied by German troops during World War II and only here you may enjoy an authentic architecture and art of 18th century.
