Description of the Vorontsov Palace

Vorontsov Palace was constructed in 1749- 57 for Prince Mikhail Vorontsov, who was one of the most distinguished ministers of Empress Elizabeth. It was designed by Bartolomeo Rastrelli. In 1810 Vorontsov Palace was turned into a prestigious Corps des Pages. This most exclusive Russian military school or academy trained the best officers for the Russian army. Its graduates included several Decembrists as well as Prince Felix Yusupov and many others. In 1918 the school was closed and instead Vorontsov Palace became home to Suvorov Military Academy for young military officers.
