Imperial Stables
 
 
 
 

The stables with their double porticoes on two sides of the entry have two courtyards. The first, which is square, contains the coach houses, and also served as the riding school. The second was semi-circular and contained the actual horse stables. The aisles of the principal facade and the second story contained lodgings and quarters for the personnel of the Imperial Stables.

This building bears a resemblance to the Alexander Palace of Tsarskoe Selo, with a colonade connecting two pavilions and an encircling rear wing.

Les écuries avec leur double portique des deux cotés de la porte d'entrée, avaient deux cours. La premiere, carrée, sur laquelle donnaient les remises, pouvait servir de manège; sur la seconde, en hémicycle, donnaient les écuries.

les ailes de la façade principale et le second étage étaient réservés aux logements et aux habitations du personnel.
