Winter Garden of the Anichkov Palace — Restoration
Best Implemented Restoration Project
About the project
Anichkov Palace is the oldest building in Nevsky Prospect. In 1875, the portico of the main facade was extended with a front entrance with a winter garden established above it.
In 1844, the new design project was made for the Winter Garden, and in the 1930 the Palace was renovated to become the Palace of Pioneers. In 2021 through 2022 the Palace was restored as part of the program issued by the State Preservation of Historical and Cultural Monuments of St. Petersburg.
The color patterns of the interiors were restored as they had been in the late 19th century. The marble and parquette floors were restored along with the plastering decorations, stucco elements, the dome lamp, the tempera monumental paintings, the marble window sills, the gilded mirror frames, the puff-stone flower beds, and the gilded pin-in lamps, too.
