Nikolaevsky Palace


​Nicholas Palace - three-story residence of the Grand Duke Nicholas Nikolaevich in the yard on ploshad Truda

A few years before his death, Emperor Nicholas I ordered the construction of a state residence for his third son Nicholas. The Palace was built in 1853-1861 by the famous master of eclecticism, A. I. Stackenschneider. At the Palace there was a Manezh and a Church consecrated in the name of the icon "Joy of All Who Mourn", with a basement like the cave of the Holy Sepulchre. After the owner's death in 1894, it was purchased by the Treasury to house the women's Institute of Xenia Alexandrovna.

After the revolution, it was taken over by the trade unions, who renamed it « the Palace of Labor». The premises, some of which have retained their original interior, are now leased to commercial structures.
