The Engineers (Mikhailovsky) Castle

This palace-castle, rather unusual for the generally peaceful architecture of St.-Petersburg, is located on the bank of two rivers - Moika and Fontanka, beyond the Summer Garden. There are many legends connected with this mysterious place. This was the residence of Paul I, the son of Catherine the Great, who did not like living in the main residence Winter Palace. He saw conspiracies everywhere, and so he decided to build this castle which one could enter only by a drawbridge. But Paul did not live even a month here: his suspicions were not unfounded and several weeks after he moved in he was assassinated by conspirators in this castle.

Today the Engineers (Mikhailovsky) Castle is a branch of Russian Museum; it derives its name from the Academy of Engeneering which was situated here in the XIX century.

In front of the entrance you cannot help noticing the monument to Peter I with the inscription from Paul "To the great-grandfather from the great-grandson": every Romanov sought to establish a personal relationship with the great ancestor.

“Three times I went to Russia to pick up some eggs. Six embryos tested by PGS and one was good ))) This little embryo was born when I was 44 and the egg they used was from me when I was 43…”

Different life stories, but the same dreams for a baby bring Ulrika from Norway and Willeke from Netherlands to St. Petersburg...

“…Well the Millennium shift came, the year 2000, we all remember what we did then, right? I got cancer, Hodgkin's lymphoma... And when I stand here now 17 years later, you understand that it went well! Except for one important thing…"
