I had heard about this palace but it was beyond what I imagined. The gold and ornate architecture is like nothing I'd seen before. Inside the palace itself is no different. Amazing!

September 2016 entire grounds and building are closed. We would love to have seen it. It is directly across from The Catherine Palace and would be easy to pair with that tour.

A gift of Catherine the Great to her favorite grandson, Grand Duke Alexander Pavlovich (later Emperor Alexander I of Russia) when he married Grand Duchess Elizaveeta Alexeevna.

This is my fave out of the palaces we visited during our stay in St Petersburg. Despite its modesty compared to others, I loved its homeliness and stories about Nicholas and Alexandra's life together. At this palace you actually feel like it's the real place...More

Гестапо – это аббревиатура. Полное название этой организации (кстати, существовавшей задолго до прихода к нацистов к власти – пусть и под немного иным названием) - Geheime Staatspolizei, Тайная государственная полиция. Обратите внимание, что государственная. Поэтому гестапо могло существовать (и существовало) только на территориях, входивших в состав Третьего рейха. То есть, третьей (нацистской) Германской империи. А поскольку оккупированные территории СССР в состав рейха не входили (т.е., были оккупированы, но не аннексированы), то никакого гестапо на их территории не было. Гестапо, кстати, подчинялось Министерству внутренних дел рейха, которое на оккупированных территориях не действовало. Действовало рейхсминистерство восточных территорий («ведомство Розенберга»). К которому гестапо не имело ну просто никакого отношения. Что же было? А было либо полиция безопасности и СД , либо фельджандармерия , либо ГФП (тайная ПОЛЕВАЯ полиция). Последняя – в прифронтовой полосе и в ближайшем тылу. СД – это Sicherheitsdienst. Служба безопасности рейхсфюрера СС. Фельджандармерия и ГФП, кстати, входили в состав вермахта и к СС никакого отношения не имели. Им периодически помогали и структуры Абвер-2 (военной контрразведки Германии), тоже входившей в состав вермахта. Вы подразберитесь перед тем как писать, СС были, СД (возможно) были, Вермахт был - ГЕСТАПО нет!
