    The lavish Winter Palace at Saint Petersburg, Russia, is a house which sports many faces. It is a globally recognized symbol for Imperial tyranny. It also symbolizes decadence in art and the strength of class resentment. It was this resentment that came to change Russia forever. Peter the Great built it but it was the touch of Catherine II who glorified it. In modern times, the Winter Palace served many purposes, including as a hospital, a bureaucratic hub and a museum.
