Roman Abramovich Gets His Very Own Island for $400 Million
Where do rich people display their beautiful art collections? Why in their large art galleries on their very own private islands , of course! At least that’s the case of Roman Abramovich, one of the richest men on earth.
The man is willing to spend $400 million on a former Russian military base located on an island in the middle of Sankt Petersburg. The 300 years old warehouses will be transformed into a thriving cultural and commercial center. This will also include some lovely galleries of art for Abramovich’s rich collection of modern and contemporary art, worth $86.3 million.
And we worried he will never find a proper place for the precious collection!
