Description of Angleterre Hotel

Angleterre Hotel is one of the most famous hotels in Saint Petersbur Original Hotel was constructed 1840 under supervision of Napoleon Bokin and thus became known as Napoleon's. Many notable Russian figures stayed here including Leo Tolstoy. However in 1886- 89 Angleterre Hotel completely reborn and got its current name. After Russian Revolution it became known as Hotel International and later renamed to Leningradskaya in 1948. Original name of Angleterre Hotel was returned only in 1970's. In 1987 Angleterre Hotel was completely reconstruct despite public protests. The facade of the original building preserved, but the rest of the building is brand new.

 

 

Murder/ Suicide of Sergey Yesenin

Angleterre Hotel is particularly famous in Russian history as a place where famous Russian poet Sergei Yesenin allegedly hanged himself in December 28, 1925. However not everyone in Russia agrees with the official Bolshevik theory. There is plenty of evidence that Angleterre Hotel was a site of a murder rather than a suicide.
