St. Petersburg is famous for its palace and garden complexes. Pavlovsk is one of them – a cultural heritage site that is protected by UNESCO. A reserve museum Pavlovsk designed on the edge of the XVIII and XIX centuries is a great country palace with a park that was at the time a summer residence of the Russian Emperor Paul I and his wife Maria Fyodorovna. The main lynchpin of the park is the Pavlovsk Palace. A three-storey elegant golden-white building was erected in the late XVIII century on the high bank of the Slavyanka river by a famous architect Charles Cameron. Some other outstanding decorators, artists and architects V. Brenna, A. Voronikhin, G. Quarenghi, C. Rossi, P. Gonzago took part in its design. The plan of the Pavlovsk palace looks like a horseshoe. The main façade is designed modestly and decorated with white columns, stucco and several sculptures. A dome is on top the palace surrounded with bearing parts. One of few monuments of the Emperor Paul I is located in the center of the square in front of the palace. His sight is directed towards the Lipovaya alley; he seems to meet visitors coming to admire the site.
