Турецкая баня - the Turkish Bath
was erected by order of Emperor Nicholas I between 1850 and 1852 on a small cape in the south-western part of the Large Pond. Ippolito Monighetti was the author of this project conceived as a unique monument to victories in the Russo-Turkish War of 1828 — 1829. According to the architect's plans, the composition of the Turkish Bath resembles a mosque. The cupola is decorated with bas-relief ornaments and the tall minaret completed with a spire and crescent moon lend the building a certain picturesque feel.
