But the main thing - a large lounge with monumental wall paintings. Generation next has labeled panels on the palace "retro three-dimensional graphics" or "retro 3D". Part of kids are right on the idea of the artist, muralist RSFSR Honored Academician D. Merpert, the product is really threefold. It consists of three tracks.
