This nineteenth-century palace is a worthy addition to the beautiful architectural jewels of Odessa. Built in 1830 by the Sardinian architect Francisco Boffo, the palace impressed the governor-general enough that he contracted the architect to design the Potemkin Stairs. Over the years, it was used as an engineering school, the headquarters of the Soviet Red guards, and a school for children. During the Crimean War in 1854 the palace was hit by over 200 cannonballs. Inside, the palace is lavishly appointed. The view from the upstairs terrace is incredible. Sometimes there are exhibitions at the palace.
The courtyard of the palace has a fountain known as day and night. To the northeast of the palace is a beautiful Colonnade. Check out the nearby Vorontsov Park, which covers 40 hectares. The entire complex is one of the nicest places in the city to walk around.

Unfortunately (however fortunately for the palace), it is being redecorated right now. Anyway, looks great. Huge plus for beautiful and relaxed cats walking around ;-)
Renovation works in progress (June 2018) and cannot see much. When finished the place will be very nice
Was pretty interesting while stoned
One of my favorite spots in Odessa, nice place for pictures and the seaside will make the pictures even better.
To be frank with you all I did not took this picture for view of Palace, here you can see one SEXY Mercedes parked in front of it. After going through the pages of Odessa on internet I realized that by mistake I took picture of Vorontsov Palace.............but anyways few of memories of this Palace I will write here. This Palace is near to colonnade, or its just behind it to be precise. Its well surrounded by gardens and trees which makes its appearance little dull. Near to this place is all residence area which I think more visible than this palace. And there is lot of things written on internet so I dont think I need to include it here, its always available if you want to read it more.
