Maryyinsky Palace and Maryyinsky Park
After being burnt to the ground in 1819, Alexander II of Russia had the Palace reconstructed in 1870 by the architect Konstantin Mayevsky from old drawings and watercolours. The Interior was made in the Classical style including elements of Baroque and Renassance.
The Palace was then renamed after the reign of Empress Maria Alexandrovna and used as a residence for visiting members of the imperial family up until 1917. During World War II it was badly damaged after a bomb found it's target in the center of the building. From 1945-to 1949 it was again reconstructed and later restored from 1979 to 1982.
