Anichkov Palace (Russian: Аничков дворец, Anichkov дворец) is a former imperial palace located in St. Petersburg (Russia), at the intersection of Nevsky Avenue and the Fontanka. The Palace is located on land that originally belonged to Antonio Vieira, one of the foreigners who were part of the inner circle of Peter the Great. The building takes its name from nearby Anichkov bridge, which crosses the Fontanka on this site. Designed for Empress Elizabeth of Russia in a stunning baroque style, the palace became known as the most imposing private residence of the Elizabethan era. Some suggest as Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli architects and Mikhail Zemtsov, responsible for design, although not yet proven. The facade facing the Fontanka river, took its name and was originally connected to it by a canal. The construction works lasted thirteen years and, when finally completed in 1754, was offered by the Empress to his favorite and almost husband, Count Alexei Razumovsky. After the death of the latter, the Palace was restored to imperial possessions, but was immediately offered by Catherine II to her favorite, Prince Potemkin, in 1776. The architect Ivan Starov, was commissioned in 1778-1779 to make major modifications to make it a neoclassical building. The Palace was fitted at the time of an English garden designed by William Hould.
