Situated on the corner of the Fontanka Canal and Nevskii Prospekt, the palace passed through a series of Imperial hands before Alexander II presented it to his son Alexander III on his wedding day. In 1936, absolutely everything here was given away to other museums throughout Russia. A year later it became the Palace of Young Pioneers, the Communist youth movement. It is now called the Palace of Youth Creativity, and you will have to book ahead if you want a good look around.
