The Colonnade is the latest monumental construction on the territory of Arkhangelskoye Estate constructed in 1909-1916. It consists of the uncompleted church of St.Nicholas combined with burial vault of princes Yusupovs in the middle and the grand semi-circular arrangement of columns flanking it at the left and right sides. The burial vault was built in the years just before the Bolshevik Revolution and intended, though never used, as a Yusupov family mausoleum.
