Menshikov Palace
Menshikov Palace

The first Russian Emperor Peter I, who did not appreciated much comfort and luxury in everyday life, but because of his generosity to his friend the first governor of St. Petersburg, Alexander Danilovich Menshikov presented residence on Vasilevsky Island. Here, in 1710-1714, with the participation of foreign architects D. Fontana, H. Schedel and other artists of the palace were built. The palace was built in a clear and full-dress style of the early Baroque. It was the first stone building of this size in the northern capital. By 1721 Menshikov Palace was the center of the city's cultural life. It presented valuable collection of paintings and sculptures, books and coins.

 In 1727, Menshikov governor was removed from office and sent into exile. After he was sent away , the palace was on fire. All property of the prince was seized. The structure is transferred to the First Cadet Corps and rebuilt for the needs of the school.

 In 1981, the Menshikov Palace was handed over to the museum the Hermitage. And he began to open to visitors.
