- This embraces a park of 550 hectares, a cascade of ponds and an ensemble of unfinished pseudo-Gothic palaces. Most of these red-brick structures bear decorations and masonic symbols in white limestone. The refurbished Lesser Palace houses an exhibition of Russian cut glass while the Opera House houses a similar exhibition of art chinaware and one of the park pavilions holds a display of court memorabilia. From November to April, all three are boarded up. Facilities here include an expensive manor house restaurant and a stable with mounts and horse-drawn carriages and sleighs for hire.
