Mariinsky and Klovsky Palaces, House of  Weeping Widow, Pink Castle and Chocolate House will slightly open you their secrets.

In the days of the Russian Empire the area was changed into a fortress, at first, Peter I surrounded Lavra with ramparts, and later, Emperor Nikolai finished the building of the fortress and extended it to all the modern area – Pechersk.
