Prince Abamelek-Lazarev's Palace

The prince's mansion in St. Petersburg is located on the Moyka River The last palace before the revolution was built on this site, which was purchased in 1911. Ivan Fomin, a young architect, was the author of the project.

A simple, simple neoclassical style distinguishes the building. This palace is located in one of the most beautiful places in the city, with intact interiors inside. There are two halls, one of 250 m² and the other smaller, 180 m², which was intended for performances, and there is a stage.

The Abamelek-Lazarev family was fabulously rich. They inherited a huge fortune from Georgian and Italian princes. The head of the family owned a plot in the Urals, where minerals were extracted and processed. The house was filled with riches and works of art. Most of the former splendor of the mansion later went to museums in Russia, but much was lost — the items went to schools, libraries and other institutions.

After 1917, the last St. Petersburg palace shared the fate of most similar buildings: first it was the Spanish Embassy, then the Criminal Investigation Department, and then the Institute of the Russian Language. At the moment, it houses the House of Sports Masters and some other institutions.
