The second pavilion of Yelagin, known as the "Pavilion on the Embankment" is an architectural jewel. Its Grecian Doric portico sweeps out from the building in a natural and unaffected way.

In this architectural monument with it majestic lines and restrained decoration can been seen the enormous talent of Carlo Rossi.

Le seconde pavillion de l'ile Yélaguine, surnommé le pavillion du débacadère, est un véritable bijou. Son portique de forme ovale est ravissant. Dans ce bibelot architectural comme dans ses grandes constructions, nous retrouvons l'énorme talent et le goût exquis de Ch. Rossi.
