St. Petersburg

Palace of Peter III

Built between 1758 and 1762 by Antonio Rinaldi, the small Palace of Peter III is, along with the nearby Gate of Honor, all that remains of Petershtadt, the model fortress that Peter III had built for himself. It is a simple but attractive example of early neoclassicism. A compact, two-storey mansion, the palace was designed for Peter to live in alone (the small size of the living and sleeping quarters is quite telling of that). Although it is probably one of the less impressive structures of the estate, visitors can enjoy the Picture Hall, which has a decent collection of 18th century art and the ceiling of Peter's boudoir is painted with scenes of life in Petershtadt.
