St. Petersburg, Russia: Taleon Imperial Hotel

When the bus tour passed this hotel, the guide said the building was famous as the place where Beef Stroganoff was invented. That was pretty exciting to someone who loves to take pictures of obscure historical places.

However ... there's no backing evidence that the dish was first created here. In fact, the creation story is rather vague. So, while the legend probably isn't true, it's still worth a look at the place just in case.
