The Palace was built between 1776-1780. It was planned to be a residence of regal persons, place where they could relax on their long trip from St.Petersberg to Moscow. Almost 3 centuries later the palace is located in the central part of the city, only 7 km (4,5 miles) from the Kremlin (bigest circle in the map shows the cities' border right now).
