Not all hotels in St. Petersburg are located in places where there is such an exquisite architectural environment. Since the hotel is located in the historical building of Nikolskiye Ryady, in this article we will tell you in more detail what has been in its place since 1787.

The history of Nikolskiye Ryady or Nikolskiy market begins in the XVIII century. The building was built according to the project of an unknown architect, approved by Catherine II.

Nikolskiy Market was conceived as a gostiny dvor – a separate complex of buildings where wholesale and retail trade took place, merchants temporarily or permanently lived and worked. Trade was usually conducted with other regions. The place for the Nikolskiy market was not chosen by chance, when choosing it, transport accessibility was taken into account along two water channels: Yekaterininsky and Kryukov. 

In 1825 there was a fire, the building was badly damaged, but was quickly restored.

In the two thousandth, the building became desolate and dilapidated. The authorities paid attention to it and decided to restore it. Since 2013, a large-scale reconstruction has begun and now you can see what has come of it.
