  • Hi, friends! Academics House is located in the heart of St. Petersburg, on the Bank of the Neva, opposite the Peter and Paul Fortress (Saint Petersburg, Dvortsovaya EMB., 26) and is housed in the Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, a brother of Emperor Alexander III and uncle of the last Emperor Nicholas II. Built under the State order in 1867-1874 Gg. According to the project designed by the Russian architect academician of architecture (1850), Professor at the Imperial Academy of arts since 1852 and its Rector on architecture in 1871-1887, first Chairman of the St. Petersburg Society of Architects (1870-1887), Privy Councillor from 1877-Rezanova Alexander Ivanovich (10.08.1817-18.11.1887), the Palace was the "exemplary" in shaping the image of St. Petersburg in the 19th century. It was a "small Imperial Court", the second most important in the Russian capital after the "highest court". Its luxurious interiors are a wonderful monument of architecture and art of the second half of XIX-beginning of XX centuries. In creating the interiors of the Palace except Rezanova A.i. took part of its acolytes architects Schroeter a.i., J.s. Kitner and Gong A.l. in 1883, began a reorganization of the Palace, was invited for this architect M.e.

Director of the House of scientists was appointed A.s. kind, which took an active part in helping the golodavshim scientist. Thanks to this Palace not infrequently called "RODJevspomogatel'nym House". Currently St .Vladimir's Palace continues to occupy the House of scientists is the oldest Club in Russia are scientific intelligentsia. There are literary and musical evenings, performances, exhibitions, demonstrations of movie-movies, concerts, parties, and meetings with governmental and public figures, figures of art and culture and tours to St. Petersburg residents and guests of our city. Entry on excursions (including electronic) and additional information on the website of the House of scientists. Note that you can only park your car in the streets nearby (about 300-500 meters from the Palace). Don't forget to bring your camera. I invite you to visit one of the most interesting palaces of St. Petersburg-will not regret!

  • A palatial house situated at the banks of the Neva River, is monumental in size with three levels and a basement. It has a façade in which the windows next to each window of the second-level company is just relief a coat of arms and on the third level a lion's head. The entrance three-arched Portico stands out. I liked them sculptures metal of each end that although small represent to the perfection an eagle with sword and shield, where is appreciate them minimum details, as the attitude Warrior and a tiny aguila in position front posada in the shield (attached photo). In the place was installed the Academy of Sciences to instance of maximum Gorky. Enjoy of St. Petersburg a city Imperial... a city beautiful. LIFE... is a TRIP!

  • Accidentally learned about him as about the Palace of Prince Vladimir Alexandrovich Romanov, uncle of Nicholas II. Unfortunately, there were no tours, just go on the rooms. Gorgeous furnished rooms and halls dips into the atmosphere of the time. In several rooms is located exhibition of photographs, and Navy in the White Hall was a concert String Quartet.
