The Amber Workshop is fascinating! After seeing the Amber Room in Catherine's Palace, Veronica gave us a comprehensive tutorial about the restoration process. Veronica was incredibly patient and friendly addressing all our questions. If you have 30 minutes, it's worth it.

We also booked for the “workshop” of the Barn stone room restaurating. Our English speaking guide explained to us the discovery, development etc. from the amber barn stone material. If you have a change………go there!!!

After you have seen tons and tons of ornate decoration this is a refreshing behind the scenes stop. Nice for children. Tthey show how amber is worked molded and carved. Seems every stop is a reason to sell something.

Thank you so much for your review. However the Amber workshop being a restoration place never sells anything on its grounds. The only way to work with Baltic amber is to carve it, there is, unfortunately, no way to mold it.

If you are a small group visiting the Catherine Palace, you should absolutely visit the Amber workshop. You do need an appointment for a scheduled time. But it is worth it. The guide speaks excellent English, and she explains all the aspects of how they...More

Hi, they have some beautiful items but I found them a bit pricey (and I'm from London!). I browsed for a bit but went elsewhere to buy my Amber. Hope that helps :-)
