The Myasnikov mansion was opened on Vosstaniya in Saint Petersburg

Concerts and lectures are already being held there, and a cluster of author's restaurants will soon appear

On Vosstaniya Street, 45, the Myasnikov mansion has opened - concerts of classical music and lectures on art are already being held here, and next summer a whole restaurant cluster with author institutions will appear in the courtyard and the stables building. 37-year-old St. Petersburg businessman Dmitry Zaretsky owns a 3,000 square meter mansion.

The Myasnikov Mansion is a neo-baroque building from 1857-1859. The famous lawyer Nikolai Platonovich Karabchevsky lived here. He was familiar with the entire stellar audience of the capital; Chaliapin, Meyerhold, and many other famous creative figures visited here. Once a year, charity concerts were held here, it was very prestigious to perform at which - the richest people of the city came here.

"The building was restored in the 2000s; KGIOP even recognized it as the best restoration object in the city center in 2008. We got it by accident - we were not going to hunt for old real estate. I wanted to buy out our office building, they told me the price, it seemed too high to me, and I decided to see what you can buy in the city for about that kind of money. I came across this mansion, found out that it was up for auction, and we bought it under the hammer for 550 million rubles. This is a very profitable purchase - the previous owners have invested about two billion in the restoration alone. Back in 2003, the building was received from the city by the company "MIM", they wanted to open a hotel here, but went bankrupt. The bank that gave them the loan took this object, completed all the work, and the house was empty. In fact, I bought a dollar for 30 cents - I did it primarily because it is rational, it is a smart investment.

I have no commercial plans for this place - I really love classical music, and therefore I decided that it would sound here. And we would like to give a platform to young musicians, to reveal their talent. Because in the same orchestra of the Mariinsky Theater the same people have been working for decades, you cannot get there, and yesterday's graduates of the conservatory are not tired of music, they want to record, play, compose.

For the audience, this can become an entry point into the world of high music - our concerts are short, and educational lectures are also held. I would also like to hold competitions for pianists and violinists here.

We would like to open a gallery of modern art in the basement and hang reproductions in the halls", says Dmitry Zaretsky.
