  • Palace of unusual, beautiful on the decision to make each side of the Palace is different from another. Inside did not want to, knowing that in this House was killed by Paul i. sad.

  • Taking advantage of the Saint Petersburg card went to visit this Castle located near the source of the Moika, an emissary of the Fontanka River. The castle is also close to summer gardens and just a short walk from the Cathedral of the Saviour. In front of the castle there is a monument by sculptor Rastrelli, dedicated to Peter the great. Initially the castle was surrounded by canals from all four sides. After the death of the sovereign in 1800, the family left the castle which was used as the College of military engineers and took the name of Castle of engineers. Has a square shape and suggests a more medieval fortress than a Palace of the ' 700. The inside was pretty fast: the halls they visit have gold painted friezes of the family: all in excellent condition. Some rooms have also painted the ceiling. We noticed the Castle even from the boat when we were walking around: his pink stands out by far!

  • This museum is often criticized for minor flaws, but I think the most important thing in it is the external architectural form.
