The St. Michael’s Castle is a great architectural monument and the culmination in the history of St Petersburg architecture of the XVIII century. The original idea of the castle belonged to Emperor Pavel I himself and the first sketches were made by him. The St. Michael’s Castle was the Emperor’s residence only for 40 days. On the night of March 12, 1801, Emperor Pavel I was assassinated in his bedroom, falling victim to a palace coup. Soon after, all valuables were transferred from the castle, and the state rooms were used by different administrative institutions some were even turned into apartments.
