New Versailles Built for the Wealthy
By Sophia Kornienko from The St Petersburg Times

Wealthy Russians are invited to move into baroque palaces.

Several dozens miniature replicas of European palaces of the 17th and 18th centuries, worth from $1.1 million to $5.5 million each, will be constructed in St. Petersburg's Lahta, a district within a 40-minute drive from the city center, in the next two to three years.

Though every palace is designed by Concord to be perceived as a unique jewel, its extravagance will only appear in good taste if it is surrounded by a spacious landscape, Kot said.
I can't believe they're discussing good taste in connection with this project!
