Mikhailovsky castleSt. Petersburg, Russia
4.6 / 16
Built by order of Paul I in the center of St. Petersburg at the turn of the XVIII-XIX centuries. The emperor wanted to find a new home, fearing palace coups. Ironically, it was in the new castle that he was killed. Subsequently, the territory was transferred to the management of the Russian Museum. The castle is open to tourists for tickets or as part of excursions on an ongoing basis. In the courtyard are monuments to Peter I and Paul I.
