The cabinThe first house in St. Petersburg is still here for you to see. The first accommodation built in the newly founded city of St Petersburg was a wooden house (domik in Russian, meaning small house, cabin or cottage) for Peter the Great himself. The domik is very small - only 60 sq. meters and is a strange combination of a traditional Russian house - izba - and a Dutch home with large and elaborate windows and high roof, covered with wooden tiles. Peter lived in this house between 1703 and 1708 and the living room, the bedroom, and the study, filled with Peter's original belongings, still bear the mark of his presence.
