The Great Hall (also known as the Grand Ballroom) is the centerpiece room at Catherine Palace. The Great Hall is almost 56 feet wide and over 154 feet long. The Great Hall is on the second floor and occupies the entire width of the palace. The two tiers of windows enhance the impression of grandness and size. The area between the windows are covered with gilded mirrors. The ceiling is elaborately painted, and the inlaid parquet floor magnificent. Each of the numerous gilded carvings that cover the walls is a masterpiece in itself.
