Bouvigne Castle, locally known as Kasteel Bouvigne, lies in a forest south of the city of Breda in the Netherlands. In 1971 the municipality sold Bouvigne Castle to the Brabant Delta water authority. They carried out a restoration of the castle and built a new office building on the grounds of the castle.

The Massandra Palace is a villa of Emperor Alexander III of Russia in Massandra, at the south coast of Crimea. In Soviet times, the castle was turned into a sanatorium called ‘Proletarian Health,’ used by those who were seriously ill with tuberculosis. In post-WWII years, it became officials’ summer residence: Stalin, Khrushchev, and Brezhnev all stayed here. Only in 1992, a museum dedicated to Alexander III was created on the first two floors. In its collection there are many unique items: chandeliers, a fireplace of brown marble, mahogany furniture, mirrors, and more.
