History of the House Jako: In the middle of the XVIII century the land on the which the house was built was occupied by a temporary palace of Empress Elizabeth. After dismantling of the palace there were the royal kitchens and the Throne Hall. The Throne Hall was then given to sculptor E. Falcone for work on the monument to Peter the Great also know as the 'Bronze Horseman'.
Falcone moved here in 1766 & he rebuilt the building which housed the former palace kitchen. He set up a scaffold for his work in the yard. In 1773, Falcone was visited by his friend the french philosopher Diderot, he stayed in the house until 1778, when he returned to France.
After the departure of the French the site housed a warehouse of marble for the construction of a number of buildings which gave rise to the naming of the laneway at the side of the bulding: Kirpichny (brick) lane. In 1801 the site owned by a merchant, the Prussian consul in St. Petersburg, when a residential two-storey house was built. In 1822 his heirs divied the land in two, the side adjacent to the Bolshaya Morskaya Street in 1836 was sold to architect Paul Jaco who designed many historical buildings in St. Petesburg.
In the years 1837-1838 Jaco built the current four-story building. Iron girders were used in the construction of first floor windows - an innovation in the local civil engineering. In 1842 Faberge started his business with the openning of a workshop in the basement. During the 1860s Chief Marshal Count Ivan M. Tolstoy lived in hosue Jaco, who had been former Senator and Minister of Posts and Telegraphs, a member of the State Council. Jaco house remained in the his family until 1917.
In the 1930s the kirpichny (brick) lane end of the house become the 'House of Artists', or an artists commune.

Wonderful apartment -- will recommend to all my friends!!
We loved staying in this apartment. My husband and I and another couple were in St. Petersburg for a week this month. This apartment was perfect. It was very tastefully redone and has all of the amenities one would want. The kitchen was completely equipped. The eating area and living room are very large. Although on a centrally located and busy street, we heard no street noise in the apartment. It has a phone, TV, and laptop computer and printer, and even air conditioning in each room. (We actually had four days of warm weather.)
There is a washer, dishwasher, microwave, full refrigerator/freezer, and stove.
It was convenient to many St. Petersburg sites and restaurants. There is a decent supermarket two blocks away, a wonderful bakery around the corner. and a bank with a good exchange rate across the street. It is also one block from the metro.
This apartment made a great contribution to a rich and enjoyable week in St. Petersburg.
Put St. Petersburg on your list, and stay in this apartment!
Fabulous apartment, great location, very helpful and friendly host

Perfect location for St. Petersburg!
The apartment in St. Petersburg was magnifico! Luxurious, spacious, spotless and extremely well equipped. The kitchen was a dream! We loved the dining area with its three-pane bay window, giving us a panoramic view of life in St. Petersburg. We were extremely grateful for the opportunity to question both the owner and his staff on our concerns of the moment, they were gracious.
The location of the apartment was equally fabulous; we were within a five-minute walk of almost all of St. Petersburg’s highlights including the grand metro, mere moments away. The restaurants in the immediate vicinity were top-notch at every level.
One couldn’t ask for more!
Thanks guys, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Peter

Beautiful, spacious, quiet and convenient
We had a wonderful stay in the apartment in St. Petersburg during the White Nights. The location is perfect and the wide window sills in the kitchen and living room are great for people watching. Everything was within footsteps of the apartment, including the ATM, groceries, and of course the Hermitage. The apartment is spotless and well provisioned. The Wifi was a big plus, as was the complementary Chrome Book on the desk in the living room. We were 7 adults so we used the fold-outs in the living room and kitchen. Everyone was comfortable. We would definitely come back or recommend it to friends!
Tsentralny (central) District
St. Petersburg is a large city of 5 million people. When visiting the most desirable location to stay in is the Tsentralny (central) District. This is where the 'living museum' is located, this is the old city which where most of the Museums, Palaces & Theaters are located. You can walk to the Hermitage & Russian museums, take a boat trip on the canal, enjoy Nevsky prospect for it's shopping & people watching.
