Marienburg, Photogallery I (KrUR)



The nice cottage place to the north-west of Gatchina was named after the wife of prince Pavel Petrovitch (emperor Pavel I) princess Maria Pheodorovna. There were one-two caserns and mill at first. Then after the construction of rail-way to S.Petersburg in 1870 it became the popular summer cottage place. Nowadays this is the suburb of Gatchina city nicknamed as "Madrid". This name has it's origin in 1942-43, when the 250-th Spanish Blue Division fought here. Their soldiers nicknamed local points for geographical points from Spain.
