LUNAPARK

The name "Fountain House" since XVIII century was fixed for the estate of Counts Sheremetevs, built on a vast stretch between the embankment of the Fontanka River and Liteiny Prospekt.

The architect of the main manor house was Savva Chevakinsky. The most famous architects of different epochs took part in creating the interiors of the palace, such as: F.S. Argunov, I.D. Starov, A.N. Voronikhin, D. Quarenghi, H. Meyer, D. Kwadri, I.D. Corsini, N.L. Benois, A.K. Serebryakov and others.

The Fountain House was one of the high-society centers of St. Petersburg, a meeting place for outstanding musicians, cultural figures and scientists. Sheremetev Choral Chapel was well known not only in Russia, but also in Europe. The palace became almost a museum of the history of the Sheremetevs family, which for many centuries played an important role in the Russian state.

Since 1990, the Sheremetev Palace is one of the branches of the St. Petersburg State Museum of Theater and Music. Within the walls of the palace the Museum of Music was created, which is based on the largest collection of musical instruments from around the world in Russia.

Now in the halls of the Sheremetev Palace you can see the objects of Sheremetev's collections, as well as works of painting and decorative and applied art of the XVIII-XIX centuries.
