The author of the project is the architect A. I. Shtakenshneider, who carried out the construction in the style of the so-called “Russian neo-baroque”.
The original interiors of the palace have been preserved, among which the main halls on the 2nd floor stand out: the Oak Hall (former library), which was used as a small concert hall, the Picture Gallery, the Grand Dining Room, the Beige, Green and Raspberry living rooms, the Mirror (ballroom) hall with a beautiful acoustics, which was originally intended for concerts and is still used in this capacity.
In all these and other halls, artistic decoration of the mid-late 19th century has been preserved: fireplaces, lamps, stucco, paintings, mirrors, furniture and much more.
Now several organizations rent premises on the territory of the palace:
- St. Petersburg cultural center “Palace of Beloselsky-Belozersky” (theatrical and concert events, excursion programs)
- “TV Channel One – St. Petersburg”
- Museum of the formation of democracy in modern Russia named after Anatoly Sobchak
- Saint Petersburg State Academic Symphony Orchestra
Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace was built at the opposite end of Nevsky Prospekt as an architectural mirror of Stroganov Palace.
