Palaces and Mansions in The Russian Federation

Looking through this forum I found two similar threads to this one, however one was in Russian, and the other one was dead.
And both of them contained forts and monasteries which I'm not really interested in. So I figured creating a new thread would be justified.
This thread will be dedicated to palaces and mansions located in The Russian Federation, which were built before the revolution.
I'll start off with some of the more famous ones.

Peterhof Palace

Federal City of Saint Petersburg

Built: 1714-1725, 1745-1755

Commissioned by: Peter the Great, Elizabeth

Architect: Bartolomeo Rastrelli

Beautiful pictures and very promising thread, however posts are way too heavy.

Ah, I suspected that might be a problem for some, but there probably won't be as many pictures in the future since I've already showed many of the famous palaces. Actually, I might even move some posts I've made to other pages later, in order to dilute it somewhat.

Excellent showcase Notgnirracen. The interiors are truly stunning.

Do you know exactly where in the Crimea the last ones are located, possibly Odessa and vicinity?

The Vorontsov Palace is located near the town of Alupka, and the second one seems to be somewhere east of Yalta. I'll add it to the posts.
