Cameron Gallery, Tsarskoe Selo

In Tsarskoe Selo, Cameron's Classical-Roman baths (1780-85), Hall of Pillars with "Hanging Garden," and Cameron Gallery combine to great effect with the late Baroque palace. Cameron's design allowed for the Tsarina to walk directly from her favourite rooms in the palace past the Hanging Garden to the Agate Pavilion and from there to the Cameron Gallery. In this photo, on the right, the view to the Agate Pavilion can be seen.
