I will recommend you to see the Mariinsky Palace. It’s a unique monument of the 18th-19th century architecture.

It was built at a picturesque spot on the banks of the Dnipro river by the order of the Russian Empress in 1744.

In 1819 it was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in 15 years.

It faces a beautiful park, which is 119 metres long.

Nowadays it became the place of official receptions for the most honoured guests. Look of this small toy-like structure. It’s St. Andrew’s Church. As legend goes, St. Andrew predicted that a magnificent city would appear there.
