Mariinskiy Palace, in Kiev
« on: April 30, 2005, 05:07:37 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I was hoping someone could provide me with a floorplan or some older photos of the Maarinsky Palace in Kiev. It was designed by Rastrelli in 1713, and Caroline the Great despised it as she thought it looked like "mounds of whipped cream."

Its currently the residence of the President of Ukraine, but I'm hoping I can find a floorplan for a thesis I'm writing on Ukranian History. Again, if anyone could furnish me with this stuff, I'd be eternally greatful.

What do you mean??

I suppose he wants those plans for his researches or just becouse he wants to see them. What is the problem?

That palace is NOT only the residence of Yushenko, first of all it is Romanov Palace. So we all have every right to  see a plan of it.
I have the floor plans of every floor of the residence of the Italian President, and he is not less important than Yushenko.

Does anyone know how often the IF visited or stayed here? Also additional photos or floorplans would be great. I believe from looking at a satellite photo that there are a couple of wings that don't appear in most photos.
