Palace, Pavlovsk

The summer residence of Pavlovsk was built by Charles Cameron for the future Tsar, Paul I. The self-contained ensemble of palace and landscaped park - with its pavilions, cascades, artificial ruins, avenues and river - harmoniously combined the principles of Neoclassical architecture with an English-style Romantic park (reconstructed after World War II).

Cameron was involved in the interior design, but most of the work was done by his Italian pupil, Vincenzo Brenna.
