Historical reference: On the English embankment there are many magnificent palaces and mansions of the XIX century. Among them, not the last place is occupied by this classical palace, the mansion under No. 8 of the Count Fedor Ivanovich Paskevich-Erivansky, whom he and his wife owned for 60 years until the revolution of 1817.

By the order of Countess Potocki, the prominent architect A.I. Shtakenschneider developed in 1843 a project to rebuild a three-story facial palace, but he remained on paper, why the facade retained some of its classic appearance. All subsequent changes are associated with Paskevich, for which the architect A.Kh. Pel in 1856-1858 somewhat changed the design of the main facade and created from the yard a glazed winter garden on cast-iron columns.

The decoration of the interiors was occupied by Academician P.A. Gedike, a talented representative of eclecticism.

The main staircase with the upper light is decorated with pilasters, sculptures and mirrors; The swan (or Blue) hall is decorated with a frieze with the heads of swans; The walls of the grand dining room are decorated with oak panels and embossed leather. In the caissons of the ceiling there is a colorful ornament. In the Arsenal Gallery (the prince had an excellent collection of ancient weapons) with arched ceilings, the plot sculptural panels were preserved; in the Gothic Hall – architectural design in the style of developed Gothic. In the same style – a neighboring knight’s office with figures of knights in combat armor.

Since 1924 the palace housed the Museum of Merchant Shipping and Ports and the Naval Library, based on the collection of Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich. When the museum was disbanded and the library was moved to another location, the mansion in 1947 was taken over by the Lengilproekt Institute, which, by 1993, freed it for the Moscow Industrial Bank. The bank has completed a long-term restoration of various interiors investing about $ 20 million.
