Park - architecture monument of XVIII—XIX centuries

The Alexander Park, with an area of around 200 hectares, adjoins the Catherine Palace on the side of the parade ground (courtyard).

Originally an imperial hunting area called the Menagerie, in the late 18th  – early 19th centuries this large park was turned into a magnificent ensemble thanks to the care of the owners of Tsarskoye Selo, with Chinese-style pavilions of  Catherine II’s reign (Chinese Village, Chinese Bridges, Chinese Theatre) and Gothic Revival structures from the time of Alexander I (White Tower, Arsenal, Chapelle, Pensioners’ Stable, Imperial Farm).

The World War I Museum “Russia in the Great War” is open in The Martial Chamber from August 2014.
