That wooden palace in "Kolomenskoye". I have shown earlier some details of this palace: doors, roofs, the arches, two porches. The palace has been constructed in a XVII-th century, him named the eighth miracle of the world. But in 1767 the decision to disassemble it a masterpiece was accepted. The present structure represents a breadboard model of the Palace of Alexey Mihajlovicha full-scale. Building was conducted under the drawings made on command of Catherine II. However the new structure isn't completely wooden: all designs monolithic, ferro-concrete, covered then logs. Orientation concerning parts of the world also is broken — the breadboard model has been turned round a vertical axis on 90 degrees that has completely broken sacral sense of an initial structure. On September, 4th, 2010 Yury Luzhkov has opened the recreated palace.
