  • The palace itself links this small city to the Great Imperial Russian time-line and was built by the same architects who has built in Russian capitals. Very few house items preserved, but you can feel the spirit.

  • Good has every thing u want.
  • A place not to miss. Beautifully restored interiors, 17 century palace museum. Guided tours.
  • Great place. Highly recommended for anyone who's visiting Gomel.
