Guard Headquarters Building


The building has created a complete ensemble of the square by balancing the Winter Palace and the General Staff Building

Guard Headquarters building is situated on Palace Square in St. Petersburg. Established in 1847 by architect A.Briullov, the elder brother of the great Russian artist Karl Briullov. The building has never lost its military function - for a long time it housed the command of the Imperial Guard, and then Command of Petrograd Military District and Stuff of 6-th Air Forces Army.

During major city events the Guard Headquarters Building becomes a screen for colorful compositions, dedicated to the  upcoming celebration.
