Description - The Chinese Palace at Oranienbaum by Will Black

This is a superbly illustrated guide to Catherine the Great's exquisite Chinese Palace at Oranienbaum, located on the Gulf of Finland west of St. Petersburg. This is a dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted travel related media & organizations. Catherine the Great's seizure of power in 1762 remains one of the most dramatic and iconic episodes in Russian history. The little-known and rarely visited Oranienbaum Estate was the setting for her coup d'etat, and from where she commissioned her first palace as Tsarina. Her creation, the Rococo Chinese Palace - designed and built by master architect Antonio Rinaldi - and which has survived intact, is one of the world's most dazzling examples of 18th century palatial architecture. This superbly illustrated book offers readers an insightful and informative guide to the unique history and collections of this one-of-a-kind palace.
