The Nikolaevsky Palace nowadays it’s not only one of the luxury palaces of Saint Petersburg but also a perfect place where one can enjoy a magnificent Folk Show "Feel Yourself Russian". Admiring the precious interiors of the Palace you’ll be able to listen famous Russian music, enjoy wonderful voices of singers and appreciate incredible skills of Russian folk ballet dancers. In the restaurant of the Palace you can feel yourself a real Tsar’s guest. Nikolaevsky Palace was built by the order of Nicolas I for his third son Nicolas in 1861 by an outstanding master of eclectic style – Shtakenschneider. During the long time the Great duke Nicolas was living there with his family. After the revolution the Palace was nationalized and was called the Labor Palace. During the Second World War the building was partly destroyed. Now it’s repaired and is opened for visitants.
Having combined different styles, baroque, classic, renaissance, the architect Shtakenschneider created a building full of harmony. The marvelous marble gala stairs which decorates the interior of the palace is considered to be one of the best creations of Shtakenschneider.
