Prise le 03/11/2010
The Big Gatchina Palace was built in 1766-1781 in Gatchina town by Antonio Rinaldi (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Rinaldi ) project for Count Grigori Grigoryevich Orlov (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grigori_Grigoryevich_Orlov ) who was a favourite of Catherine II (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ekaterina_II ). Catherine the Great took such a great liking of the Gatchina Palace and park, that at Orlov's death in 1783, she bought it from his heirs and presented it to her son, the future Emperor Paul I (http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_I_of_Russia ). Paul I was the owner of Gatchina for eighteen years.
