  • I adore watching palaces. This is especially liked. Big, beautiful, with gilding. Straight in the preceding century has passed.

  • Anichkov Palace is located in the heart of St.Petersburg, near the Anichkov bridge and the main entrance is from the yard. This is one of the oldest buildings of the Nevsky Prospekt. Externally is a large light building, the original idea in the Baroque style, but remodeled under classicism. Moreover, I would not say that the Palace their exteriors struck me as luxurious or elegant-in my subjective view, construction, looks hard and monotonous. Simply put, not afraid of the word-boring. When entering the rooms of the Palace felt plaque "sovdep", despite the beautiful staircase, pleasant green walls and an abundance of decor. Halls, mostly, not impressed. But not without exception. Two halls just conquered their interiors and design solutions. And more like a winter garden. One of the astonishing halls is a library of Alexander III. First impression-got into Hogwarts-everything is so fabulous. This two-tiered space, with niches and fireplace with inserts of green and white marble, book stilažami, with some incredible wooden ceiling, carved wooden doors, wooden panelling and all sorts of projections-and all this in the thread and lacquer. Looks stylish, richly and endlessly cozy. Just for the sake of this Hall is well worth a visit anichkov Palace. Another Hall, who drew attention to themselves is a room of fairy tales, where the walls are painted with scenes and characters of famous Russian fairy tales. It's certainly like children. Anichkov Palace building now located St. Petersburg Palace of young creativity.

  • Very much it was pleasant to us, one library to do not hesitate to visit the anichkov Palace. With the library didn't want to go, namely its show in the historic Russian tv series "the great".
