Commandantís House
         
      Commandantís House  
         
    Designed by D.Trezzini and the engineer de Marine the Commandantís House was a typical residential building of St. Petersburg of the mid 18th century. Inside there were the Commandantís living quarters and some auxiliary premises. The Commandants  - usually the outstanding military leaders and the most trust-worthy servants of the Crown - were appointed by the Emperor. The first Commandant of the Fortress was K.Rönne (1703-1704) followed in the years to come by R.Bruce (1704-1720), N.Zinovyev (1764-1773), A.Sukin (1814-1837), I.Skobelev (1830-1849), I.Nabokov (1849-1852), etc. All in all during the tsarist times there were 34 Commandants in the Fortress. This position was honorable and was often granted for life. 19 Commandants who died on their post were buried at the Commandantís Cemetery at the Eastern wall of the St. Peter and St. Paulís Cathedral.
