Rent conference halls at Anichkov palace
Anichkov Palace is considered to be one of the most outstanding examples of palace architecture of 18th to 19th centuries in St Petersburg. The palace was called «Anichkov» after Mikhail Anichkov, the commander of а battalion of engineers who in the reign of Peter the Great built Anichkov Bridge over the River Fontanka. Later, the same name was given to the nearby palace, construction of which, under the orders of Peter’s daughter Empress Elizabeth I, commenced in 1741 and finished in 1751.
The Garden is an essential and one more wonderful part of Anichkov messuage, cozy and quiet place in the heart of the bustling megalopolis. Now Anichkov Garden is much smaller than the original — in the XVIII century. To create French Garden, landscape architect Ludovic Kinder Tapers was invited, and K. Rossi designed the lattice fence and two elegant pavilions, which received the name of its creator — the Rossi’s Pavilions.
A special place in the history of the Palace is occupied by the presence of famous writer F. M. Dostoyevsky and poets Vasily Zhukovsky, Aleksandr Pushkin within its walls. Pushkin’s bust by sculptor T. Davtyan was appeared in the palace in 1937, that date was doubly memorable — opening of the Palace of Young Pioneers and the 100th anniversary of the poet’s death.
