In 1826 Nicholas I enlisted architect Adam Menelaws to construct a “farmhouse” in the Alexandria Park near the Grand Palace at Peterhof . What he ended up with instead was an English Gothic-style cottage. There are all sorts of interesting knick-knack's, colored glass, porcelain figurines and clocks. Each room is decorated in a different style: Rococo, Art-nouveau and Gothic, to say nothing of the usage of crown-molding which adds a whole new dimension. Today, this tiny little retreat is a museum.
