The Stroganov Palace is designed by the architect Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli in 1753-1754, one of the examples of Rastrelli’s unique “baroque-rocaille style”. Now it is a branch of the State Russian Museum, which owns the building since 1988.
Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace was built in the 19th century at the opposite end of Nevsky Prospekt as an architectural mirror of Stroganov Palace.
