2 Palace of Peter the Great’s Greatest Friend

Palace of Peter the Great’s Greatest Friend

Posted on November 3, 2015 by tim

This is how it looked in 1714, the time it was allegedly built. The inner yards were in Italian style. But for now only the one segment of this palace has survived – the one that we can see with the gray roof and two conjoining buildings.

The palace had its own small port to host the guests arriving on boats. The huge balcony on the second floor is where the orchestra was hosted which played each time when guests arrived.  On top of the building there was six Roman Gods statues.

These are small copies.
