A little bit about Lomonosov:
The architectural and landscape complex of Oranienbaum is a unique palace and park ensemble of the 18th-early 20th century. The palaces-museums of Oranienbaum are located in the territory of the Upper Landscape Park and the Lower Regular Garden with the total area of 162 hectares. Its structure includes three architectural ensembles, reflecting the history of this estate throughout the 18th century. Oranienbaum survived the Second World War virtually unscathed. The original interiors and decor still exist in many palaces and pavilions. The famous landmarks scattered throughout the park include the Palace of Peter III, Chinese Palace, Menshikov Palace and the Rollercoaster Pavilion.
The Grand Menshikov Palace was built as the country residence of Prince Alexander Menshikov in 1711–1727 by the architects Giovanni Maria Fontana, Gottfried Johann Schädel, and Johann-Friedrich Braunstein. From the 1760s to 1770s, it was rebuilt by Antonio Rinaldi. Despite the numerous changes in the internal decoration, the building is a remarkable architectural monument of the Petrine Baroque. In September 2011, the palace was opened for the first time as a permanent museum after the completion of major restoration work.
A brilliant and unique example of the Rococo style in Russia, the Chinese Palace is the jewel of the Oranienbaum Palace and Park Complex. The Palace was built by Antonio Rinaldi. The outwardly restrained palace elegantly reflects the authentic interior decoration of the middle of the 18th century: ivory, wood, smalt, wall murals, panels, overdoors, portraits, and ceilings made by European and Russian masters.
