Small Marble Palace
This palace, built between 1857 and 1862 is the second palace in Saint Petersburg, after the Marble Palace, to have a façade entirely covered in marble.
It is well-known for its Louis XIV main stairs considered as a marvel. Originally there were mirrors facing the five arched windows. The rooms are decorated in Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI styles.
After having several owners, the Small Marble Palace now belongs to the European University of Saint Petersburg (private post-graduate education).
