Main Court Pharmacy building in St. Petersburg

Main Court PharmacyOfficers’ quarters of the Pavlovsky Regiment in St. Petersburg

The first state pharmacy, called “Main”, was originally located in the Peter and Paul Fortress. Then it was transferred to a building specially erected for it on Millionnaya Street.

The first building was built in 1732. Designed by architector D. Trezzini. In 1789-1796 G. Quarenghi rebuilt it.

The main facade overlooking Millionnaya Street is decorated with four Corinthian semi-columns and a triangular pediment, and the facade along Aptekarsky Lane – four pilasters.

In the second half of the XIX century individual details of the facade are slightly changed.

1839 – the building was handed over for the arrangement of apartments for the officers of the Pavlovsky regiment. The layout of the apartments, especially in the outbuildings, is very inconvenient – enfilade, the ceiling height is 5 meters.

Address: Millionnaya st., 4 (Aptekarsky per., 1), Central District. Nearest metro: Nevsky prospekt station.
