  • Worth a visit if you happen to be in Gomel. Besides an opportunity to visit the palace, you get to see some beautiful rooms, and a few nice icons as part of the collection. You can climb to the top floor of the bell tower which is filled with exhibitions. There is also an audio tour in English. Unfortunately quite a few pieces of art have disappeared from the palace during WWII.
  • Tourist attraction👍

  • Is required for viewing. Unlike other restored manors in Belarus is within a beautiful authentic interiors. Gomel Palace is not only a magnificent architectural structure. In different periods of history it has been a unique repository of the world's richest collections of Antiquities and works of art. The newly built Palace p. a. Rumyantsev-Transdanubia was lavishly decorated with works of art, many of whom gave him the Empress.

  • Restored after the destruction of the Palace, where a number of offices have lost their original meaning and tailored to the needs of the servants of the people. So in the dining room of the Princes Hall is arranged, where every meeting and signing documents. On the walls hang portraits of famous city dwellers. In the former the white living room staged a Chamber Hall, which hosts various concerts and events. Under the Museum's needs took Tower and a couple of premises in the left wing. Museum ticket worth 5 rubles, it includes cost bahill. When entering hand audioguide to which you can attach headphones with 3.5 mm jack. In the basement where the cashier is an interactive space in which using the Android apps you can see pictures and take pictures with them.
