The Amber Room at the Catherine Palace outside St. Petersburg is shrouded in legend. Originally constructed for Peter the Great, it was transported to Germany in World War II and eventually disappeared. The current reconstruction is a golden, glittering space, its walls lined with panels in 350 different shades of amber. While the Amber Room is a delight for the eyes, the Salt Room at the Spa at The Taleon Imperial Hotel in St. Petersburg awakens all the senses. Services are accompanied by the singing of birds and the sound of a babbling brook, while nature scenes are projected on the digital screens. The room is even beneficial in ways that elude the senses, with ions—sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iodine—and the purity of the air designed to leave you rejuvenated and relaxed.
