Photos: Here's a giant 18th century palace up for sale in Russia

Let’s have a gawk.

USUALLY WHEN WE look at crazy or ostentatious gaffs up for sale around the world, it’s possible to compare them by looking at the price tag.

This time around however, this giant 18th century palace up for sale in St Petersburg is so off-the-charts posh, it doesn’t even come with a price tag – you have to ask the estate agents.

The palace – yes, it’s not even a house, it’s an actual palace – belonged to a Duke before it was nationalised in 1917 as part of the Russian revolution which saw the Tsarist regime overthrown. It’s not clear exactly what the palace was used for during the communist era – Food storage? Political meetings? Parties? – but it’s up for sale now on the private market.

Let’s have a look around.
