Inzhenerny castle


Inzhenerny castle

Very likely one of St. Petersburg's most mysterious places. The castle was built in 1797-1800 by order of the Emperor Paul I. The Emperor was anticipating a conspiracy against him and was scared for his life. That is why the castle initially featured numerous corridors, levels and rooms, and was surrounded by a moat. In spite of his precautions, Paul I's sojourn in his new castle did not last long. Soon after moving in he was assassinated by conspirators, including his own son. Unfortunately, the original building with its multiple labyrinthine, is lost to us. However, what remains of the building's initial gloominess and mysteriousness is still sufficiently depressing.
