Marble palace


Marble palace

The palace was given its name because marble of 32 sorts was used in its facade and interior decorations. It was built in 1768-1785 by the architect A. Rinaldi. This palace was given as a gift to Count Orlov by Catherine the Great for his successes in service for government.

Now it is a branch of the Russian museum where contemporary exhibitions take place.
