The Anichkov palace complex is outlined in red.  To find the location just go the Google earth and its easy to find in St. Petersburg Town Centre area.  Robert has the location - address listed above.

Excellent, Douglas.  I have been to the Anichkov a few times, but only theatre and concerts.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

It is on Nevski Prospekt, and the Fontanka canal.

isn't it across the street from, or down the street from, the Beloselski-Belozersky palace?

Anichkov is the Red outline - Anichkov Bridge is Blue - the Beloselski-Belozersky palace is Green outline.  The Belo Palace faces both the street and the canal.

Vassili_Vorontsoff, your photos are great.

We had a wonderful tour of the Anichkov palace interiors - it was in Russian and we had to listen to some lectures about the children's rooms and art work (after the revolution it was a children's centre - The Pioneer Palace - but is now called the "Palace for Creative Youth" - the word pioneer has disappeared along with the soviet system) but for the most part it was great. The main staircase is gorgeous. The garden room and the library were outstanding.

On the Nevsky between the Anichkov and the Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace (I have never been able to take a tour - it seems to only be open at concert times) is the Anichkov bridge over the Fontanka, famous for its 4 Klodt's horses at each corner.

I do have an old postcard of the Anichkov Palace painted a deep dark red.

Anichkov is such a beautiful palace!

On a less trivial note, does anyone know where guests would have stayed while at Anichkov? Was there a difference between where, for instance, family might have stayed vs. where more diplomatic visitors would have stayed.

I hope someone does see this and will reply.

In Reco's post with a plan of the 1st floor (British English), there are three room names which I don't understand.

1. Opochival'naya and Mary fedorovny's restroom -- What does the Russian word mean? 

2. Front -- this seems to be a room. What does "Front" mean? Possibly  this is a machine translation but it doesn't make sense in English.

3. TORR DRAWING ROOM -- What does TORR stand for?

Thank you.

FRONT is obviously Antre-Room.
Opochivalnya is a bedroom. Restroom is actually 'Garderobnaya' aka the room where the Empress put her clothes on and off.
TORR in fact is Saloon or Minor Dining-Room - it was used as a drawing room and dining room.
