MARBLE PALACE IN ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA
The Marble Palace, located between the vast Field of Mars (Marsovo Pole) and the mighty Neva River, is truly memorable for its stern beauty. Thirty two different types of marble were used on its facades and interiors. In the last few years this historic palace has undergone a major transformation, becoming a part of the Russian Museum and home of its Modern Art department. At about the same time the equestrian statue of Emperor Alexander III has replaced the Bolshevik armored car in the palace's courtyard.
