Palace of Peter the Great’s Greatest Friend

Posted on November 3, 2015 by tim

Russian statesman Menshikov is well known in Russia. He is often referred as the best and the only friend of Russia’s greatest innovator Tsar Peter the Great. They say that de facto this person was a ruler of Russia for two consecutive years. His official titles included Prince of Russia, Duke of Ingria and many more. So for sure this man needed a palace as all Tsars did at that times and so he had one. Thanks to Russian blogger Deletant we are able to see the best luxury and style man could buy at that time in Russia. Let’s see!

They say that this palace in St. Petersburg has been built in “barocco” architectural style pretty rare for the city. It faces the Neva river with its entrance.

In the park in front of the entrance there is a small monument of the previous owner – Duke Menshikov.
