Marble Palace

Marble Palace

The Marble Palace, created in 1768–1785 especially for the Catherine the Great favorite Grigory Orlov, in course of time turned to the royal residence. The major construction mate- rial of the exterior and interior decorations was natural stone: nearly 30 sorts of granite and marble. In the halls of the pal- ace you can visit the permanent exposition: the unique Ludwig Museum in the Russian museum — the collection of Western and Russian art, and The Rzhevsky Brothers Collection, including paintings, sculptures and graphic arts of the XVIII-XX centuries, and decorative and applied arts as well.
