Apparently a French gentleman named Louis Mantin inherited this mansion and a fortune at age 42. He then dedicated his life to the arts, science and his personal pleasure.

Supposedly, these are leaked photographs of “Putin’s Palace” that is built near Novorossiysk, on the Black Sea. This mansion is almost finished, judging by the pictures.

Prime Minister’s press office denies that this building belongs to Putin. Inside this post, you can see outside and inside photos of this beautiful, luxurious and huge mansion built in Russia.
This very small apartment is located on Piazza di Sant’ Ignazio in Rome, an amazing square in the heart of the capital and is overlooked by a huge Renaissance Church.

Even though this is Rome, it is still crazy to pay such money for 5 square meters.
