Wedding Palace


The large, white square building located just southwest of the Victims of Political Persecution Memorial Museum is called the Wedding Palace. Built in 1976 by the Russians, it has since been used for tens of thousands of wedding ceremonies, including the marital vows of a few foreigners.
