Once home to Grand Duke Sergei and his wife Grand Duchess Elizabeth in the late 19th century, the deteriorating red colored Beloselskii-Belozerskii Palace is now a wax museum and cultural center. If anything, it is one of the most fantastic looking buildings on Nevskii Prospekt. The site was acquired by the ultra-wealthy Beloselskii-Belozerskii family in 1797 and the building was erected in the mid-1800's. It is without question, one of the best examples of Russian baroque style in St Petersburg. Overlook the wax works and sneak upstairs;the rococo interiors will leave you breathless.
