The Palace was the first independent project of F. B. Rastrelli
In the first quarter of the XVIII century, the house of captain Ipat Mukhanov was located on this section of Dvortsovaya embankment. In 1715, it was bought by the Moldavian statesman Dmitry Konstantinovich Kantemir, who was forced to move to the Bank of the Neva river after an unsuccessful Prut campaign. The old house was demolished, and a new Palace was built in its place according to the project of the young F. B. Rastrelli.
Now the building is partially occupied by the Institute of Culture.
