Mariinskiy Palace in Kiev by 1Val Star this if you like it!

It was build on the territory of the park – Mariinskiy Park in 1752 by order of Russian Queen Katherine The Great. The park which was removed and a beautiful English park, covering the area of 8,9 hectares was founded on its site. The Palace was built in the Baroque style of Bartholomew Rastrelli, the tsarina’s favorite architect.

Well, I've unfeatured it at least, as it clearly doesn't belong in the Ukraine gallery.
