The Petrovsky Traveling Palace in Moscow is one of the largest civil buildings built in Moscow after the fire of 1812.
The beginning of construction and the history of the palace
In 1831, the construction of the palace began according to the project of A.G. Grigoriev.
For many years, the palace was the official summer residence of the emperors of Russia, as well as a place for recreation and reception of guests of the first persons of the state, including members of the imperial family. The project of the palace on the banks of the Moscow River was developed by the outstanding architect K.I. Rossi, who worked for Nicholas I.
The palace is not only beautiful, but also very cozy. It has several floors. From the first to the third floor there are rooms for receiving guests. The fourth floor is for the emperor and his family, the fifth floor is for servants. As you know, in addition to the main entrance to the palace, there are two more entrances, from the side of the river and from the embankment. The construction of the palace was completed by the end of 1834.
In 1835, the gates were opened and in front of the palace a ceremonial courtyard was erected with a gate and a colonnade that overlooked the embankment. The gates with columns were installed on the territory - one of the first in Moscow. The columns are made of gray slate. A ceremonial hall was made in the palace - large in plan, with high ceilings and windows in the park. All the walls were covered with silk and the ceilings were decorated with paintings.
