Employees of the Mikhailovsky Castle also note that at this time there is an exhibition dedicated to Nicholas I. Petersburgers and guests of the city, offering to look at the portraits of the emperor, as well as the objects that he used - a service, furniture and others.

We remind you that the castle was completed by order of Emperor Paul I at the beginning of the 19th century. It is the largest architectural monument in St. Petersburg. There are many urban legends associated with Mikhailovsky Castle. So, for example, it is believed that ghosts live inside.

There is another terrible story related to the death of Paul I. It is said that the holy fool came to the emperor once, who assured him that he would live exactly as many years as the letters in the inscription on the castle. Indeed, he lived exactly 40 years.
