Discover Lomonossov Russia

Originally known as Oranienbaum, this palace 30 miles from St. Petersburg, opposite Kronstadt Island, can be visited on the same day as Peterhof Palace. The baroque-style Grand Palace was built between 1710 and 1727 for Prince Menshikov, Peter the Great's loyal companion. Look out for the Chinese Palace, built by Rinaldi for Catherine II, the ceilings of which were decorated by Venetian painters like Tiepolo, Magiotto and Torelli.
