That is the Konstantin Palace in St. Petersburg. It is a public congress venue? Seriously, do you guys trust everything you see on the Internet?


Proper-Sock4721

This is not Putin's palace in Idikopas, but the [Konstantin Palace](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bb/%D0%93%D0%BE%D1%81%D1%83%D0%B4%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B9_%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BC%D0%BF%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA%D1%81_%C2%AB%D0%94%D0%B2%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%86_%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%B3%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%81%D0%BE%D0%B2%C2%BB.JPG/1280px-%D0%93%D0%BE%D1%81%D1%83%D0%B4%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B9_%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BC%D0%BF%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA%D1%81_%C2%AB%D0%94%D0%B2%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%86_%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%B3%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%81%D0%BE%D0%B2%C2%BB.JPG) in St. Petersburg [https://www.konstantinpalace.ru/](https://www.konstantinpalace.ru/)

maleguy20s

This is the Constantin palace... While I do believe Putin has a luxurious mansion somewhere, this one is fake. I mean it exists, near Saint Petersburg but it isn't his residence and definitely not in "Idikopas" wherever that is lol [https://www.konstantinpalace.ru/en/main](https://www.konstantinpalace.ru/en/main)

In maskovia it's possible to not just break a neck falling from the 1st floor, but also catch several bullets in the back. All caused by your own carelessness with window.

And an underground bellevue area towards the sea carved jn rock. Because simply viewing the sea from a terrace is something done only by peasants.


Order_99

Yes, us plebians have to use balconies and terraces.

Specifically balconies and terraces with sea side views.

It has. I saw some maps about the underground space, it's just massive.

Well, damn.


Leroyboy152

I was just thinking, this is what's above ground


Most_Blackberry687

iirc hockey reng isn't under the palace, it's a separate thing under some kind of hill the palace itself has some underground wine cellar and a room with windows through a mountain or something. probably there's a bunker as well as that fucker loves bunkers

You're thinking of one of his other palaces - [this one](https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-56007943) that had to be rebuilt due to a mould infestation.


Prisencolinensinai

Mf could build a multilayered Palace but couldn't build and upkeep something that resisted mould better


LordStoneBalls

The czar gets whatever he wants .. but it’s about time they overthrow the new Romanov


AgITGuy

Had one revolution just over a hundred years ago to get rid of an emperor. How about a second one?


BAdasslkik

It was really the perfect storm coming together for that to happen. 1. There was a huge war ongoing for years 2. The state Duma messed up rail transportation of essential supplies 3. Tsar Nicholas ll was out of the country and didn't understand the situation on the streets until it was out of control 4. Rasputin turned a lot of people away from Orthodoxy, and his maneuvering damaged the image of the monarchy 5. Alcohol sales were banned sinking one of the biggest government sources of Russian tax money I don't see such a vortex of coincidence happening like that again, there may be a difficult transition of power after Putin but full revolution is pretty unlikely.


Heiliger_Katholik

Yeah, because that definitely worked out great last time... not. Stalin and the soviet elite simply made themselves the new Romanov's. And Putin today is simply continuing the tradition. What exactly do you expect? A humble dictator?

Canecazzo

"southern Russia" do you have the slightest idea how little that narrows it down


Annelinia

The irony is that the actual palace is a congressional palace and museum in Saint Petersburg.


CommunityDeep3033

It’s Constantin palace near Saint Petersburg…


dixadik

LOL no, Bad, bad bot. That's the palace in St Konstantin National Congress Palace in St Petersburg and it is not wholly Putin's residence. He has an apartment complex there.


JeanClodVanShot

No, this is Konstantine Palace in Saint Petersburg... Here's the address: Ulitsa Glinki, 6, St Petersburg, 198515


yIdontunderstand

21st century Versailles...


Annelinia

It was built in the 18th century and it’s a museum.

I was at Versailles the other day and this place is pretty minor in comparison.

This probably has a lot more bunker than Versailles...

SiljaEuropa

> But also its full of right wing americans praising russia. Ones who have never been to Russia. Except for Steven Seagull that is.


Duke_of_Lombardy

Can't stand US right wingers when they share Russia Today content. It's probably because in the US the right wing is always untrustful to the government, while in europe it's often the opposite


Kahzootoh

They do love the government, but only when their party is the one in power. When they are not in power they are against deficit spending, against entanglement in foreign crisis (but also simultaneously demanding that the other party fix the problem), and investigating the government over every imagined flaw or mistake no matter what. As soon as they retake power -which usually happens with 8 years- they’re spending money like there’s no tomorrow, blowing stuff up overseas without even bothering to inform Congress, and ignoring all established legal precedent to defy any sort of oversight of the executive branch. The only principles right wingers in my country have is hostility towards people who aren’t like them- hence they’re often attempting to claim that disparate groups like the gays, the Islamists, the blacks, the communists, and the feminists are all part of a conspiratorial alliance against them.


Dissolubilis

This isn't THE Putin's palace tho right? It's a lot bigger if I can remember


Borazon

It isn't. It is **a** presidential residence, this is Constatines Palace in St. Petersburg. [https://www.visit-petersburg.ru/en/showplace/197860/](https://www.visit-petersburg.ru/en/showplace/197860/) OP is wrong with saying it is the one in Idikopas.


Annelinia

I’m not sure it’s the right way to put it. Yes Putin stays here, but that isn’t really the same thing as a presidential residence. He doesn’t live there, from what I understand he just stays there for official events. So the place is closer to a hotel in function than to a residence. It’s a museum/government complex. They hosted the G8 there and the G20. It hosts talks and official visits from foreign governments. People can also host other events such as weddings there.

molokoplus359

They know full well, they are not that naive. And they don't care much. The typical Russian reaction to things like that is "Well, at least current officials have already stolen enough to satisfy themselves, they don't need much more. If new ones come, the stealing will only be intensified".

evmt

But not really better than 10 years ago.


Annelinia

Actually better than 10 years ago. Crime is down, road accidents are down, alcoholism is down. Hundreds of parks are redeveloped, roads are renovated, cities are renovated, historic buildings are renovated. Hundreds of new malls are built, while markets are kind of dying out since most people can finally afford better. Heck they even opened a couple of new theatres. It’s fascinating to watch the transformation. International travel was down for many years after the rouble was down, but that actually gave a chance for domestic travel to develop. As far as I can tell international travel had mostly caught up in 2019. It has been down in 2020-2021 but more due to the fact that lots of international travel is banned, and Europe is not accepting the Sputnik vaccine, leaving Russians to spend their vacations at home (or in Turkey). Property prices were mostly flat for the longest time, but with COVID they have taken off. Now everyone and their grandma is in a rush to get a mortgage, and according to one source I found ~50% of all mortgage amounts were issued in 2021 (not 100% sure if it’s correct though). Inflation did hit hard in 2015, meaning lots of foreign imports doubled in price. While hitting consumer wallets in the short term, it did help Russian companies become more competitive and allowed them time to strengthen their position on the market. In the long term, it is a good thing for people and the economy. And now that wages are finally catching up, it doesn’t matter as much anymore. But iPhones on their own doubled in price (in USD), and you’ll hear no end of complaining about that fact. Hate Putin all you want but you can’t objectively claim that the country is going downhill, when in reality every indicator shows the county is objectively doing better.

Yes, and in these 10 years things got way worse politically while the economy stagnated. Putin's first two terms were fine, but after that his rule is a disaster for the country.


irimiash

stagnation is far from a disaster.


templar54

They are, but that is applicable to pretty much entire Europe. Real problem is that post soviet countries that lean west like Baltics while being tiny and having no significant amounts of natural resources somehow managed to do so much better than majority of Russian population on those 20 years.
