Dutch Reformed Church, located at 20 Nevsky Prospeсt. A monument of classicist architecture. It was erected in 1831-34 (architect P.P. Jacot). The facade of the church is decorated with a Corinthian portico containing a high relief in the tympanum and a Latin inscription on the pediment, which has not survived to this day. The church hall is located on the second floor, possessing a circular plan and capable of seating 400. It is decorated with twin Corinthian columns. The modelling was done by I. Balin, and the vault painting was made by Vasilyev. Previously the building had two wings containing shops and lodgings.
