House of Peter I

House of Peter I

The House of Peter I is the oldest building in St. Petersburg and a unique monument of the city. It was built shortly after the founding of St. Petersburg at the place chosen by Peter the Great and was named The Original Palace or The Red Mansion. The log walls have large windows with small panes and are painted in brickwork imitation. The high hipped roof is covered with wood tiles. In 1723-24, on Peter’s order, a stone roofed gallery was constructed around the house as a protection against bad weather. The present casement was built in 1844 by the architect Kuzmin. In 1929 the house was given to the state. In 1930 a memorial museum, House of Peter I, was opened here. Since 2003 The House of Peter I has been included into the museum complex of the State Russian Museum.
