Description

This subcollection contains images of Pavlovsk from the William C. Brumfield Collection -- Photographs of Russian Architecture. Pavlovsk is located in a valley of the Slavyanka River, about 30 km from St. Petersburg (Leningrad Oblast). Founded in 1777 as a gift from Catherine the Great to her heir, Paul, the Neoclassical palace and park were designed by Scottish Architect Charles Cameron between 1782 and 1786. The palace and grounds were made into a museum following World War I but were extensively damaged during the German occupation of World War II. Restoration was not completed until 1973. Pavlovsk was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1989. NOTE: most of the exterior views of the palace and park are placed after the interior views of the main palace.
