Place: Peter and Paul Fortress
Construction time: 1748-1749
Architect: N.I. Muravyov (?)
Style: Petrine Baroque
Interesting fact: This building is a rare example of preserved typical house of the first half of XVIII century. Peter the Great ordered to build residential and institutional buildings according to the certain models. Therefore, if you “clone” the Engineer’s House in your mind, you can imagine how the Petrine St. Petersburg looked like. In our days, there is hardly anything left from that Petersburg.
Museum: it houses various temporary exhibitions, usually of little interest to a regular tourist.
