Ropshinsky Palace to be Restored from Ruins

Art dealers of Peterhof are waiting for historical land to be officially transferred to them to recreate there a palace and park ensemble of the Romanovs dynasty epoch.

The estate in Ropsha was founded by Peter I. However, not even the base has remained from this palace. The new building was constructed under the counts Golovkins.

Hydraulic construction system here is considered unique.  Presently the dams and flood-gates are in a deplorable state.  There was a time when the ponds were filled with water with carp and trout fish that were cooked for the imperial family of the Romanovs.

All the objects have already been transferred today to fixed assets of the Peterhof Museum. These are 28 monuments of architecture, some of them 10 to 20 percent preserved, while others have to be reconstructed from scratch.
