Catherine Palace is laid out with all the doorways exactly the same distance from the exterior walls. Therefore, guests standing in a doorway could see for hundreds of feet and through many rooms. Since the palace has many mirrors and windows, the light makes this view even more impressive. This hallway looks much like the hallways at the Hermitage.
