This palace has hosted fashion shows to Russian Ballets. Are you going to miss it?
A palace full of history.
This extraordinary glass palace is one of the magnificent symbols of the soviet regime and it's famous for being the place where the communist political party congresses were held; where the country's first president took his oath, and for being the headquarters of the very famous Kremlin ballet group that performed Swan Lake for the first time with Maya Plisetskaya and Nikolay Fadeechev as the leading roles. Built in 1961, the palace has a large banquet hall, and an auditorium with a capacity of 6,000 people. Curiously, the palace goes down 17 metres under ground, which is equivalent to a five-story building. Nowadays, it hosts fashion shows, circuses, operas, and even concerts. In fact, big stars such as Pavarotti, Whitney Houston, Bryan Adams, and Liza Minnelli have all performed here, among others.
