Vladimir Putin’s ‘secret palace’ with beauty parlour and casino revealed by anti-Kremlin team

A secret northern palace allegedly built for Vladimir Putin has been revealed by the anti-Kremlin team working with jailed his foe Alexei Navalny.

Hidden from prying Russians amidst the majestic forest and lakes of Valdai, it boasts a three-storey spa complex with a ‘personal beauty parlour’ for the strongman called the ‘temple to his asceticism’.

Two floors are hidden underground replete with a cryo chamber for extreme cold therapy, and a mud bath, in a 75,350 square ft relaxation facility.

There is also a float pool – ‘a large bath or capsule filled with very salty water, that is, you lie in it and seem to float on the surface, as if in zero gravity’.

‘There is a fully equipped cosmetologist’s office, next to a dentist’s surgery,’ claimed Navalny’s team.

The sprawling lakeside estate seen on drone footage includes a stable, golf course, mini-golf course, VIP restaurant with a cinema, bowling, billiard room and even a mini-casino.

The complex is dubbed Putin’s ‘most secret official dacha’.

The mysterious complex with several large residences is partly owned by the Kremlin and partly via a company called Prime by Putin’s associate, billionaire Yuri Kovalchuk, 69, dubbed his ‘main purse’ and ‘sponsor of palaces’.

‘The main house is quite modest by Putin’s standards, but it is very carefully hidden,’ said a video produced by the Navalny team.

The main house is a four storey mansion with balconies, terraces, and a main staircase with a fountain.

‘There is a Chinese pavilion on the shore which is a guest house’ and also a church on the Novgorod region luxury hideaway.

It apparently has a 2,485 square metre indoor skating rink.

The alleged expose on the secret palace comes as anti-corruption campaigner Navalny is on hunger strike in a grim penal colony.

The Russian authorities this week leaked a video of him in a hospital cell, apparently to show he is not as ailing as his aides and family claim.

However it is not clear when the video was made.

After seeing him this week, his wife Yulia, 44, said: ‘After the visit with Alexei, I worry about him even more.’

She said: ‘I’ve never seen skin so tight around one’s skull.’

She said he had lost 20 pounds since starting his hunger strike, over the failure to allow him to be treated by a doctor outside the prison service for back and leg problems.

Earlier this month in a message to his jail governor, she wrote starkly: ‘If something awful happens to Alexei, his death will be on you – and on Putin.

‘Except that Putin will hand it over to you, and even hold you guilty.’

Navalny’s London-based aide Maria Pevchikh said in the video that ‘(Putin) himself, his relatives, children, lovers, along with relatives and children of these lovers, are literally inundated with super-expensive real estate’.

Earlier Navalny alleged Putin owned a gargantuan £1 billion Black Sea palace at Gelendzhik – in the Russian south – with a red velvet pole-dancing boudoir and a casino.

Another close Putin friend, billionaire Arkady Rotenberg, 69, later claimed the property was his.

Navalny has separately accused Putin of using state cash to fund his secret mistresses.

The opposition leader – who was allegedly poisoned by a chemical nerve agent planted by an FSB hit squad – calls Putin the world’s richest man and says he has a ‘slush fund’ to cover the expenses of his extended family.

This comprises alleged partner Alina Kabaeva, a former gold-medal winning Olympic gymnast, and ex-mistress Svetlana Krivonogikh, who is reportedly the mother of his love child, now aged 18, known as Luiza Rozova.

Before he was jailed for what he claims are political reasons, he said: ‘Putin – as befits a person who imagines himself a monarch – has a rich and eventful personal life.’

‘The needs of our humble president are not at all limited to the Black Sea palace.’

The Kremlin has disputed Navalny’s claims and denied impropriety.
