Chesme Palace and Chesme Church

One of the eldest and alluring architectural ensembles sprawls across the Gastello Street - Chesme Church, the federal architectural monument. Chesme Palace and Chesme Church ( Church of St. John The Baptist) were built as the favorite for Catherine the Great, Empress of Church,  of Grigory Potemkin in honor of his partaking in crusade against the Turks and the Battle of Chesma ( Chesma Bay in Mediterranean Sea ). The Palace was built in the Gothic architectural style.
