St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
The Constantine Palace and Park in Strelnya, a famous monument of architecture, was restored from ruins for the celebrations of St. Petersburg’s 300th anniversary, in 2003. Laying the first stone into the foundation of the Palace, Peter the Great planned to turn it into Russia’s main maritime residence. He wanted the Palace to become a “diplomatic window” to Europe, a Russian Versailles, a symbol of Russia’s power and prosperity.
Today, the Palace hosts conferences but also cultural activities such as concerts of classical music.
