In the St Michael’s Castle branch of the Russian Museum, the Naval Library had occupied premises with an area of 2,231 square metres in the best rooms of Emperor Paul I’s former residence.The final decision on relocation of the library was made in February 2018, under RF Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky. The library’s entire inventory held at the castle was relocated by the Main Command of the Navy itself within one month. Immediately after the library’s move, the Russian Museum began restoration of the halls.
