Tsaritsyno is Russian for Empress's Palace. It was ordered to be built by Catherine the Great in an area just South of Moscow. Her favorite architect Vasily Bazhenov spent 10 years designing and building the palace, but unfortunately when Catherine laid eyes on it, she didn't like it and ordered it to be pulled down and another one built on the same site. Its second architect retained the layout but blended neoclassical and Russian gothic to create a startling fairy tale structure. She died however before the work was finished. Today, the Tsaritsyno remains as one of her architectural legacy in Russia and is being restored to its former glory.
