Ropsha Palace at Risk of Another Collapse

The facade portico of the Ropsha Palace near Petersburg collapsed on January 8.

It is not improbable that other collapses with happen. Elena Kalnitskaya, the CEO of the Peterhof memorial estate, which supervises the Ropsha Manor, the former residence of the Russian emperors, reported to TASS about it. 

“It is a unique object and it must be saved – we must not sit on our hands. Our first steps will depend on whether we get emergency financing or not” – Mrs. Kalnitskaya emphasized. 

The palace built in Ropsha in the mid 18th century has been roofless for the last 25 years. Experts spotted deviations of its façade pillars back in the early summer of 2014. During the summer and autumn Peterhof staff held several community work days and cleared the park of Ropsha.
