The Summer Residence of One Russian Businessman

The summer residence of St. Petersburg businessman Sergey Vasiliev is located in Vyritsa village (Leningrad Oblast). The palace is a small copy of the famous Catherine Palace, but the richness of its decoration is maybe even better!

  1. Its look nice, but how can someone live there, all the blinking gold is awful after an hour.

    I also would be worried all the time about the things there, I want to live in a house and not in a museum.

  2. Ever notice how the rich always live the best in the poorest countries? Now they are busy trying to make the rest of us as poor as Russians so they can build massive palaces too. Maybe there will be another revolution and these palaces will be given back to the people who earned them in the first place.

      • @anotherbeatnik, WHERE did @george state or even imply that @john does not have a right to an opinion or that @john has no freedom of expression??

        What @george censured @john for was @john’s socialistic post.

        It could be that the owner of the mansion got his fortune dishonestly at the expense of others, including taxpayers but @john does NOT know that but immediately assumes it is so.

        It could also be as @george writes, that the mansion owner did not come by his fortune dishonestly, creating jobs in the process, and @john is jealous.

  3. The dinning room was the only place I saw that maybe I could tolorate. This place is so gawdy and busy, it would bother me as well to stay in there for any length of time. Isn’t this the same place with a replica amber room or maybe a different place? It’s interesting to see how the filthy rich live. But I’m not impressed, it’s so over-done.

  4. “and these palaces will be given back to the people who earned them in the first place.”

    Can you elaborate on this please? How can ordinary people accumulate such wealth without exposing their capital to high risks. Oh wait, they don’t have a capital to begin with. And all their income for their entire lives would not be enough, heck even 10-20 lives would not be enough earning wages to save this much.

  5. Blue gold and white? Jesus Christ that is also a super tacky house! What the hell is up with all these Russian billionaires with no taste whatsoever. But like they say, money cannot buy taste.

  6. I agree with John. I’m not a fan of what the Communists did to Russia, but I think that in cases like the one above there might be justification for the redistribution of wealth.

  7. Too plain. He should put some texture on the walls, add some color. 😛

    But kidding aside, how does someone look at this garish explosion every day? What’s weird is there is almost no furniture in any of the photos, but you don’t notice because it is so garish.

  8. ha ha ha the new Tsars are back in charge and living like Gods. The Romanovs have their revenge. History repeats itself…once again. Pathetic really.
