Old and "New"

Palaty Saltikovikh (Palace of the Saltikovs) is dated 1670-1690.  It was reconstructed and rebuilt during 3 centuries and covered by more modern style (considering..) decor. And in 1970-1980 palace was discovered under the Empire style facades of the building.
So at a moment the building is kept like this - 19th century facade facing one side street (Armiansky pereulok) and 17th century facade looks at the other side street (Krivokolenny pereulok).
PS. They paint post boxes in blue here.
