The Anichkov Palace is an architectural monument, a complex in the center of Saint Petersburg. Originally it was a country estate located in the former Preobrazhensky regiment yard. The Anichkov Palace was built in 1741-1750. (Architects M.Zemtsov and G.Dmitriev; completed in 1754, architect B.Rastrelli) in Baroque style.
Beautiful main facade looked at the Fontanka River which was connected with the palace by means of a canal. In 1778-79 the architect I.Starov reconstructed the palace in Classicism style. In 1817-19 the architect C.Rossi erected two pavilions in the garden and put up metal railing.
The first owner of the Anichkov Palace was Empress Elizabeth‘s favorite Count A.Razumovsky. In the 1770s Empress Catherine II gave it as a present to Duke G.Potiomkin. In the end of XVIIIth century the palace was taken over by the Treasury, in the early XIXth century it was accommodated His Majesty‘s, the Emperor‘s Cabinet (state institution that ran Emperor‘s property). In the middle of the 1860s Grand Duke Alexander Alexandrovich (the future Emperor Alexander III) became the owner of the palace. In 1881-94 the Anichkov Palace was the residence of the Emperor Alexander III, who didn‘t like Winter palace, to be owned later by his widow Empress Maria Fiodorovna. From 1918 up to 1935 the palace housed the Museum of the City (the predecessor of the Leningrad history Museum). In 1936-37 the palace was reconstructed to house the Palace of Young Pioneers (architects A.Gegello and D.Krichevsky).
Now in the complex of old buildings there is a Concert Hall "Carnival".
It is a nice, cozy and comfortable hall where the ballet performances took place.
