Menshikov Palace Tour

Menshikov Palace was built in 1710 for the first Governor of St. Petersburg - talented military leader Alexander Menshikov. The palace with its garden has been placed between Bolshaya and Malaya Neva occupying the whole island. On its large territory there were lots of service buildings like bakery, mead makers, Russian baths and much more. Peter the Great loved to visit this Palace and often organized celebrations, embassy appointments and royal weddings.

In 1727 after Menshikov was accused in treason his Palace was given to the exchequer, later in 1731 Kadetsky building was rebuild and the whole palace became a military school.

At the end of the 19th century the Palace was re-established and museum of the Corps was opened there. But museum didn't last for long: its collections were given to other museums in 1924. During 1956 to 1981 the Menshikov Palace was reconstructed again and became a part of Hermitage Museum. The exhibition shows Russian Art of 17th-18th centuries.
