  Anitsjkov Palace
by filipdebont

Following Nevskiy Prospekt, just before you cross the Anchikov Bridge with its four men with horse statues, you can see the magnificent Anitsjkov Palace.

It was built in 1741 - 1750 in a typical Baroque style. It was a gift from the Tsarina Elisabeth to her lover Aleksej Razoemovski.

The palace is named after a lieutenant-colonel Michail Anitsjkov, who at the foundation of the city had his camp at this place.
