Stroganov Palace

Alexander Demianchuk/TASS
After the Moika, Nevsky Prospect widens and becomes more elegant. On the shadow side of the street is the Stroganov Palace, one of the best examples of the Russian Elizabethan Baroque style. The palace is home to a branch of the Russian Museum. In the courtyard, there is a restaurant and some remains of garden sculptures - two small garden sphinxes, figures of Flora and Neptune and six cast iron pedestals depicting lion masks.
