However, it was rebuilt because a lot ofdamage was done to the place during war times. During the 18th century,the construction came to a halt as the entire Russian capital moved itthe north city. It was in 1740’s when an Italian architecture was hiredby queen Elizabeth and once again the construction began.The Palace was built to extend the Russian autocracy. The bestarchitects were hired to perform the splendid job and finally they didcome up with a fine piece of art. The dimensions of the palace aremassive.
