  • It used to be a nice palace before bolshevics. But it got plundered to take building blocks for some ugly buildings. Few fragments left only but they have nice ladies guides who love their history and have good sense of humour. Recommend to walk around with the guide and as a bonus you will get a story of the local ghost. You have to decide yourself is it kind or evil one.
