As our winter holidays are drawing to an end here's one more picture with the festive Christmas trees, this time of a different size:)
That's the interior of the Catherine Palace that I posted earlier, and namely one of the Antechambers of the Golden Enfilade.
These rooms were located before the Great Hall and were intended as places for people to wait before audiences and the public appearances of the empress.
The antechambers were lit by windows on both sides and finished to Rastrelli’s designs. Their architecture echoed that of the throne room of the palace: the main element in their decoration was gilded woodcarving.
Through the doorway of the Third Antechamber there is a splendid vista of the gold-embellished apartments of the Catherine Palace that extend for some 300 metres. This sight particularly impressed visitors. It was not without reason that this creation of Rastrelli’s was already known as “the Golden Enfilade” in the eighteenth century.
