Ruins of Palace of Catherine II Epoch Found in Leningrad Region
Draft of Pellsky Palace

 The ancient base and remains of a ceramic conduit of the well-known Pellsky Palace constructed under Catherine II have been found in Otradnoye Settlement of the Leningrad Region.

Workers of one of the local plants found the ruins of the palace. However, the owners of the enterprise are not happy with the find – now they will have to pay about 500 thousand roubles for a historical and cultural expert evaluation. The thing is that the regional culture committee’s budget does not have money for this.

      The find cannot be destroyed either – otherwise the enterprise will have to pay a penalty. In order not to lose “history fragments”, the staff of the enterprise transferred them to the building of a settlement library.
