Mariinsky Palace
Mariinsky Palace

 The Mariinsky palace was built by the architect Shtakenshneyder in 1839-1844 for the dayof wedding of  daughter of the emperor Nicholay I ,  grand duchess Maria Nikolaevna,  with the duke Maksimilian Leykhtenbergsky. Earlier on this place there was a magnificent palace of the count I. G. Chernyshev, built by the architect Zh.-B. Valen-Delamot. Shtakenshneyder used  the walls of former palace for construction of new building.

The main façade of the building is issued in style of classicism with additional  elements of other styles. The palace was constructed according to  the most modern  technologies of the epoch, with use of construction materials,  which could provide durability  to the building and various comfort to his inhabitants.
In 1852 the duke Maksimilian died. Maria Nikolaevna lived in the palace till her death in 1876. The Mariinsky palace was inherited by their children, Evgeny and Georgy Leykhtenbergskiye who had to sell the palace in treasury for the debts. Since then began the political life of the palace- the following state departments were settled down in its walls: The State Council, the State office, Committee of ministers, the Ministry of Defence and the Applications on the Highest name accepting Office. After revolution in the palace were placed various establishments of the new governments. In 1918 the revolutionary government moved to Moscow, and the Mariinsky palace was given for barracks of Red Army. After 10 years, in 1928-1929 in the palace  there was arranged the hostel on 1000 beds.
During war in the palace the military hospital was placed. In 1945, after repair, in Mariinsky  palace it was placed the Leningrad Council,  which was trying within decades to repair some rooms of the palace, but complex restoration of its interiors was made only in the 1960-70th years. During this restoration were restored  paintings  of Pompey gallery, Reception interiors (The red hall), the Dance (White).
Now in the building of the palace settles down  the Legislative assembly of St. Petersburg. In 1990 in the palace was restored the house church ,where  in soviet period  a cinema hall  was  arranged .
