Lvov, V. P. Stasov, K. I. Rossi, O. I. Bove, A. I. Rezanov, I. I. Charlemagne, I. I. Leonidov. On public and private orders they erected various ensembles, koteks or separate buildings, and sometimes ennobled also the whole territories, as, for example, P. R. Nikitin who transformed the provincial city, N. Ah. Lviv, which has equipped the Novotorzhsky district.

The Imperial Palace of Tver is an outstanding monument of Russian architecture. Built for Empress Catherine II in 1763-1778 by The great Russian urban planner P. R. Nikitin, it has repeatedly changed its appearance in more than two centuries, reflecting the styles and tastes of the eras.

Among the most outstanding and having not only local significance of Tver architectural ensembles is the Tver Imperial Palace-a unique monument of Russian architecture of the second half of the XVIII–XIX centuries, associated with the names of architects Peter Romanovich Nikitin (in the period 1763-1778 biennium), Karl Ivanovich Rossi (April-August 1809) and Alexander Ivanovich Rezanov (1864-1871 biennium). Built "peace", for almost 250 years, he warmly extends his wings-" hands " towards Tver and numerous guests of our city. No wonder the people call it" Travel", that is, providing shelter to the traveler.

In many ways, its appeal is due to the fact that the Palace is not only marked by artistic merits, but also is an important part of the national culture, art, history, fanned by the names of the Imperial Romanov house and other famous people whose work and creativity make up the glory and pride of our country.
