The Marble Palace

At the end of Millionnaya Ulitsa (Millionaire's Street) on the left there is the Marble Palace, built for Catherine the Great's favourite Grigory Orlov, who died before its completion, and so the building was used by her other boyfriend, Stanislaw Ponjatowski.

The palace derives its name from its exterior's granite and marble layers. During the soviet era it was home to the Lenin Central Museum; currently it is a branch of the Russian Museum and home to its Modern Art department, which concentrates on modern Russian and some Western art and often features temporary exhibitions.

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

After 3 IVF in Sweden, 3 miscarriages, Elisabet and Pär became parents of lovely Ester through egg donation in St. Petersburg

“…When I left the clinic and walked down the Nevsky Prospect I knew I was pregnant — and the feeling was right! 9 month after her visit at the AVA Clinic Alexander was born!”
