In the modern world, the energy of the atom is used in industry, medicine and other spheres of human activity. However, the usage of radioactive substances can have a negative impact on the environment, the health of workers and the public. Therefore, it is important to keep a close watch on the radiation situation in the immediate vicinity of facilities where radioactive substances are used or stored. These can be nuclear power plants and industrial enterprises, as well as areas with a naturally elevated background radiation level. In this paper, a study of the background radiation of the object of possible radioactive contamination – Gatchina Palace in Gatchina, Leningrad region was carried out. On the basis of measurements made, we have performed the calculation of the annual radiation doses of staff and tourists, as well as issued recommendations to ensure the radiation safety of employees and visitors of the Gatchina Palace.
