Thank you.  Imagine that!!  Do a great job and then be punished for it.

If they considered it too "luxurious" then why did they approve the building to begin with?

Possibly they did not think what a result would be.  :-\

I'm trying to identify the palace/estate now known as sanatorium "The Ukraine" in Miskhor.  Does anyone know the history of this building as far as who belonged to?  It's history?

I have searched throughout the Internet but have come up emty-handed.  There seems to be a lot of discussions about other palaces/estates, but this one seems to be missing.

Any help/information will be sincerely appreciated.  I have tried inserting the picture but it's not working, so photos of the builind can be found here:

Alex, the "Ukraine" sanatorium belongs to the "resort" branch of "Stalin Neo-classic" architectural constructions of the 30s-early 50s. I believe it was build for precisely that purpose  - working class people's health care and recuperation.

Thank you for the information, but does anyone know what stood on these grounds before WWII? Many years ago, my grandfather showed me an old postcard (circa 1960s) from the site now known as Sanatorium "Ukraine" and became very sad when he told my father that he used to "hide" behind the statues in the foreground of the photo show on the left of this page:

I do not have any more information on my family's history as my grandfather changed his name before arriving in the United States out of fear of retribution by the Stalinist government and would not divulge more out of lingering fear. It was suspected that the French government made these arrangements for my grandfather in Constantinople where he lived for several years after escaping Crimea.  Everything remains a mystery (my grandfather died in 1977) but I think a key clue to finding out more about my family's history is knowing what stood on these grounds before the site was apparently destroyed in WWII save for the statues and steps leading up to the present sanatorium building. My father believes this site may have been his home.

Once again, any help is greatly appreciated.
