Домик Петра I

St. Petersburg, Russia
4.3 / 73
The first residential building in St. Petersburg at the beginning of the 18th century, where the emperor lived during the construction of the city. At the moment, the wooden structure has been moved to another place and covered with a stone "case" for better preservation (the first frame appeared at the end of the XVIII century). According to legend, the house was built in just three days by the hands of skilled carpenters. Since 1930, a museum has been operating on the territory where you can see the personal belongings of the king.

The house is well protected and has an interesting history. It is amazing how well it has been preserved. Tickets were 300-400 roubles for an adult (Feb 2020). Finding parking was not a problem. Worth the visit.

Worth coming there. Unique “shelter” is a remarkable monument itself. Picture shows an opposite side of Neva which is spectacular.

It has a tremendous historic value as the first building and palace built before the formal foundation of the city, and surprisingly it has kept excellent conditions.
