Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich Palace

The Palace of Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich (1856-1929) is the last one to have been built in Saint Petersburg (1910-1913). This building designed by Alexander Khrenov has a corner rotunda and a Neoclassical Portico on the main façade. Other parts of the building are in art-nouveau style. The Grand Duke didn’t have much time to enjoy his palace, as a supreme commander in Russia’s Imperial army he had to go to the front at the beginning of World War I. He left Saint Petersburg after the Bolshevik Revolution and moved abroad in 1919. The palace hosted several institutes and was restored in 1985. Since 1990 it became the residence of the plenipotentiary representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Federal North-Western District.
