Ensemble of the Marli Palace. It is located between sector ponds and Marlin pond. Ponds were also used for economic purposes – they bred fish for the Royal table. Fish were trained to come to feed at the sound of a bell, which was fun for the Royal family and guests. The ensemble of the Palace “Marli” is protected from the cold winds of the Gulf of Finland due to the high rampart, which was built from the ground when organizing ponds.
