Now the church at the Catherine Palace is restoring only. Nothing more. The Arabesque hall was the last restoring room.

It's very exciting that the Chapel is being restored! That's the last of the grand Rastrelli rooms that needs it, other than the baroque bedroom Catherine the Great used for a while. I'd never seen that additional room with the baldachin - I assume it's beyond the double doors in the main chapel?

It's amazing that after 60 years there is still so much left to restore.
