Palace in a village near Bryansk

Woodcutter Vladimir Filippovich Akulov became famous thanks to the palace he created himself. One day, a self-taught master visited the famous Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and decided to by all means embody the beauty of the Catherine Era at home. Those with whom the master shared his idea skeptically smiled, and said that this would take a lifetime and a royal budget. But Vladimir Filippovich was not afraid to get down to business and after 40 years of work his creation is considered a local museum.
