Yelagin Palace Stone Island St. Petersburg


The stone Orangerie already existed in the palace complex prior to 1806, and Rossi decided not to rebuilt it. When the costs for preliminary plans for the reconstruction of the palace were calculated, labor and material to rebuild the Orangeries was estimated to cost 60,000 roubles. For purposes of economy the old building was preserved.
