A Cabin Fit for a King

Of course, an emperor's "cabin" is probably a palace. Although it was nicknamed "The Original Palace" and "the Red Mansion", this was actually a blockhouse of pine logs. It has been restored as an example of rather unorthodox Russian wooden architecture is currently one of the many buildings that make up the Russian Museum.

The Cabin now holds many of Peter the Great's personal belongings and also includes the surrounding grounds, which include the Summer Palace and the Summer Garden. The garden itself is worth a visit, as it is not only beautiful with it's plants and sculptures but still retains a lot of the planning and features of the early 17th century.
