A Humble House for a Great Leader

This small wooden house—only 650 square feet, comprising just three rooms—was built in the izba country cabin style for Czar Peter I in 1703. He used it for the next five years while he supervised the construction of his new capital, St. Petersburg, and the Peter and Paul Fortress.

Moved in 1711 to its present location, the cabin is now encased in a red brick pavilion to protect it. Most recently restored in the early 1970s, the interior still shows painted ornaments on window frames and doors, with rustic canvas wall coverings. Items from the time of Peter I's occupation, including a few items of furniture and a uniform, give a feel for how he lived his life during this important part of his rule.
