Odessa catacombs

Vorontsov Palace

The true color of the place is Vorontsov Palace. This is not the most familiar palace in the everyday life of Ukraine. There used to be a gorgeous garden here, and high-born horses lingered in the herds. Today's results have lost all their wisdom.

The palace is visually weaved from the combination of straight and crypted parts of the warehouse, the architect Vikorystov created a contrast between the great blank smooth surfaces and colonnades.

The luxurious interiors, designed by the renowned sculptor and painter Carl Scott, embrace romanticism. The interiors of the palace are the clearest reflections of the savings of the interiors of Odessa during the Empire era.
