It is Peterhof.

The Portrait (Picture) Hall in the Great Peterhof Palace consists of 368 female portraits painted by Pietro Rotari.
The Picture Hall in the Catherine Palace consists of 130 works by western European masters from the 17th and 18th centuries from various schools.
Look: http://eng.tzar.ru/content/images/TS10.jpg

or
Peterhof Picture Hall is a room with fireplaces
TS Picture Hall is a room with high ovens

Well, I think you repair your flat each 5-10 years! The Catherine Palace is a big flat that visited thousands guests every year!

It's a great thing!

I hope this will come to the awareness to  great busnissmen in Russia,if they they take care of their patrimony in as tate whre the lack of fund is blatant ,this could bring a new area for historical buildings there.

Do you know,hox it would be used Vlad?For what rooms?
Thank you so much,

Does this mean that Nicholas and Alexander's changes (the Maple room & the New Study) will be restored to the Concert Hall?
It seems a shame to destroy the history of the most important residents of the palace.  Their "lifestye" is probably far more important historically than the Quarenghi interiors.
