Stroganov Palace Collections

Acquired by the Russian Museum in 1989, this historic building on Nevsky Prospekt is one of St. Petersburg's finest palaces, built by Bartholomeo Rastrelli in the reign of Empress Elizabeth. One of Russia's most prominent families, the Stroganovs not only played an important role in the history of the Russian state, but also in the formation of Russian aristocratic and cultural tastes. The palace is slowly being restored by the Russian Museum to reflect the state of the building in its glory days in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
