What travelers say:

Smolny Palace is a three-story Baroque building, elegant and luxurious. Some of its houses used to be a boarding school. The school was an aristocratic girls' school built by the order of Catherine II in the early 19th century. In the October Revolution of 1917, Lenin once set up the Revolutionary Headquarters in the Smolny Palace and issued a declaration on the establishment of Soviet power here. It was the center of Soviet power until the capital was moved to Moscow in 1918. In the 1960s, 8 thick columns and 7 arched porches were added to the main entrance. Now, it has become the seat of the St. Petersburg city government and agencies.
