Mikhail Mikhailovich Palace

This Neo-Renaissance style building is also known as Malo-Mikhailovsky. Its construction (1884-1888) was supervised by architect Maximilian Messmacher. The last finishing was completed in 1900. It was then equipped with all the latest innovations: running water, gas, electricity and telephone. The palace was meant for Mikhail Mikhailovich. However he didn’t have the chance to enjoy it. Because of his marriage, considered outrageous, to Sophie de Merenberg (grand-daughter of poet Alexander Pushkin) in 1891 in Italia, he wasn’t allowed to return to Russia until 1912.
