Pushkin, a small town in the neighborhoods of Saint Petersburg, was a summer residence of Romanov's tzars family. Today it keeps architectural masterpieces and landscapes of exquisite gardens and welcomes thousands of tourists annually. The main interest of the visitors is the Catherine Palace with its luxury design and famous Amber Room — a unique chamber made of amber panels and decorated with gold. Catherine and Alexander's parks are brilliant examples of landscape design.  But together with it, the town is obliged by its fame to some generations of poets, writers, the genius representatives of the Russian culture, who lived, worked, or just were inspired by its beauty. The greatest Russian poet Pushkin spent here his youth. He was one of Lyceum's pupils - the privileged educated building for the children of distinguished nobility and since that time the town is always connected with the poet's name.
