  1. Beautiful, but wrong. If you lived in a really wealthy nation, this would be OK. But the Russian people were poor. Keep the people in poverty, while the people at the top live like this.

    This is what Washington DC is going to look like pretty soon unless we stop them. This is what the democrats WANT to live like there.

    They’re like the Russian tsar’s, treating the American taxpayer as an endless source of money. (and collateral I guess since we’re borrowing so much!!)

  2. Mmmmmmmm, gorgeous. Aside from the obvious mentioning of how this sort of plush, fancy living is particularly cruel when the rest of Russia was dirt poor, this place is amazing! I especially like the Turkish room.

  3. What is this interior design/decoration style called? Are there designers and builders who recreate something like this or such skills are long gone?
