The Demidovs’ Mansion
The residence of an industrial tycoon from the Urals, the house of the St. Petersburg Mayor, a religious Protestant center… - all that was true about the Demidovs' Mansion.
The history of the Demidovs dynasty goes back to the epoch of Peter the Great. The tsar-reformer relied on the merchant class, realizing that its representatives, being free, enterprising and active, are most useful for reorganization of Russia.
A direct descendant of Peter the Great's associate, a large-scale owner of factories in the Urals, the state councilor Pavel Demidov had practically unlimited financial possibilities at the time of purchasing of this mansion in 1836.
The Demidovs' Mansion is famous for its Atlantis and Caryatids, which decorate the main entrance. However, the building gained its special fame thanks to the unique Malachite Hall it harbours inside. The point is that previously malachite was not used as a finishing material because of its high cost and processing difficulties. It was normally used to decorate various knick-knacks for rich people. Here, the hall’s columns and fireplace were decorated with malachite, mined in the Ural quarries owned and managed by Pavel Demidov. Only following that breakthrough the malachite was used for paneling the halls of the Winter Palace and the iconostasis of St. Isaac's Cathedral.
Currently, the Demidovs’ Mansion is rented by the Baltic Bank.
The Demidovs’ Mansion is located at the address: 43, Bolshaya Morskaya Street, next to the Admiralteiskaya metro station.
