Baroque in architecture

36 photo with description
From travels in Russia and Europe, a certain number of photos of Baroque buildings have accumulated:

St. Petersburg
Winter Palace
Winter Palace, the main residence of the Russian Tsars. The dominant building of the main square of St. Petersburg - Palace. The magnificent architecture in the style of Russian baroque, embodied by the Italian B.F. Rastrelli, has been pleasing the townspeople since 1762. After the fire of 1837, most of the interiors were destroyed by fire and the palace was completely reconstructed.

At the moment, the building is given under the exposition of the State Hermitage Museum, but the museum itself occupies not only this palace.
