The Winter Palace of St. Petersburg was home to the rulers of Russia. When it was attacked in the 1917 revolution it changed Russian history forever, at the end of a gun: the entire royal family was shot. The palace had more than 1,500 rooms and the biggest could fit 10,000 people. It even had a private Cathedral.

After the revolution the Communist Army robbed the palace and discovered the wine cellar. And what a wine cellar it was, there was enough alcohol in it to fuel a month-long drinking binge, which historians call “the greatest hangover in history.”
