The Beauty of Baroque

The Menshikov Palace is one part of the vast and elaborate complex of buildings that make up the State Hermitage Museum. The palace is famous in its own right as the first stone building in St. Petersburg and has remained relatively untouched and unchanged for more than 200 years.

The original owner, Alexander Menshikov, was not a noble but was very close to Peter the Great, who gifted his friend with this plot of land. The original panels of marble and Dutch ceramic tile can be admired next to an exhibition of fine Russian and European artwork, along with some of Menshikov's personal possessions.
