  • Emperor Nicholas I was conceived on this very place to build a residence for his son, Nicholas, who turned 20 years old, and the Palace was supposed to be a gift to the future inauguration of the heir. Nikolaevsky Palace was laid down 21 May 1853 year. At the base of the building was based on the Ark with gold and silver coins, gold-plated copper plaque with engraved inscription about this event. Nicholas Palace project envisaged the emergence not only shelter for Nikolai Nikolaevich, but also an arena, stables, outbuildings for workers. Nikolaevsky Palace occupied a territory of almost two hectares. Construction suspended at the time of the Crimean War, and was renewed in the year 1856. For this purpose from the Department Shares was allocated over three million rubles. Opening ceremony and consecration of the Nicholas Palace was held 1 December 1861 onwards.

  • A magnificent monument to the 19th century. Excellent guide Zherikhina Elena Igorevna. Creates a picture of the life of Grand Dukes. It is a pity that this Palace is not used for its intended purpose.

  • The Palace is very beautiful, and the main staircase I just won. We were greeted by friendly staff, at a time when we went up the stairs with a red carpet, played beautiful music, we were treated to a glass of champagne and sent to the Hall. The show was bright and cheerful, it lasts almost 2:00, with a break for cocktails. All was wonderful. Thanks for the vivid impressions.
