CHINA-VILLAGE (PUSHKIN), an architectural monument, part of the Tsarskoe Selo Palace and Park Ensemble, divided by Podkapriznaya Road from Catherine Park. Constructed in 1782-98 (architect A. Rinaldi, C. Cameron), it encompasses twelve single-story Chinese style houses, intended to accommodate courtiers. An eight-faced two-tired pagoda was to become the compositional centre of the China-village ensemble, but was never built. The China-village was reconstructed in 1817-22 (architect V.P. Stasov) and in 1859-61 (architect I.A. Monighetti). The Grand Caprice Pavilion, the Creaking Pavilion (1778-82, architect Y.M. Felten), a number of bridges and the Chinese Theatre in Alexander park were constructed in the same style as China Village. The China-Village complex was extensively damaged during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45. In the 1990s restoration was carried out, the houses were converted to an elite hotel; a pagoda was erected according to the original plans. See also Tsarskoe Selo article.
