Cabin of Peter the Great

Local nameДомик Петра I
LocationPetrogradskaya, Saint Petersburg, Russia

The cabin of Peter the Great is a small wooden house which was the first St Petersburg "palace" of Tsar Peter the Great.

The log cabin was constructed in three days in May 1703, by soldiers of the Semyonovskiy Regiment. At that time, the new St. Petersburg was described as "a heap of villages linked together, like some plantation in the West Indies". The date of its construction is now considered to mark the foundation of the city.

The design is a combination of an izba, a traditional Russian countryside house typical of the 17th century, and the Tsar's beloved Dutch Baroque, later to evolve into the Petrine Baroque. Peter built similar domiki elsewhere in Russia - for example, in Voronezh, and Vologda.
