St. Michael's Castle was built as a residence for Emperor Paul I by architects Vincenzo Brenna and Vasily Bazhenov in 1797–1801. It was named after St. Michael, the patron saint of the Royal family. The castle looks different from each side, as the architects used motifs of various architectural styles such as French Classicism, Italian Renaissance and Gothic.
