The palace was majorly destroyed by the Soviet when Stalin, in his bid to thwart Hiltter’s intentions of throwing a party at the palace, bombed the place himself.

It is located at UI Razvodnaya, St. Petersburg, Russia.

Although the palace was built by Vallin de LA Mother in the 1770s, the palace was last owned by Prince Felix Yusupov, who was once the richest man in Russia. Grigory Rasputin was murdered right there in the palace in 1916.
