POLOVTSOV DACHA (SUMMER RESIDENCE) (6 Middle Nevka River Embankment), an architectural monument of the Neoclassical style. It was built on the Kamenny Island for A.A. Polovtsov (the younger, son of A.A. Polovtsov) in 1911-1913 (architect I.A. Fomin) on the location of Baron A.I. Stieglitz’s dacha. The grand strictly symmetrical building with a wide cour d'honneur, spectacular portico and Ionic colonnades was designed following the style of country houses-palaces of the Russian Neoclassical style. The space composition of the portico with groups of columns, a deep exedra and a pediment was inspired by the design of Count A.K. Razumovsky's Palace in Moscow (1799-1802). The interiors are also decorated in the Neoclassical style (with the assistance of the artist U.A. Bodaninsky and sculptor V.V. Kuznetsov). The front enfilade is disposed along the central axis of the building, of its halls only a white-columned hall with painted vault has been preserved (1835, architect A. M. Kutsi). Polovtsov Dacha is encircled by a garden (18th to first part of the 19th centuries). Since 1920, it served as a rest house, then was turned into a sanatorium (currently under restoration).
