The Smolny Convent is situated on the bank of the Neva River and goes by the name of Smolny Convent of the Resurrection among locals. After Elizabeth, the daughter of Peter the Great was disallowed to take her place on the throne, the convent was constructed to accommodate her wish of becoming a nun.

In 1741 however, Elizabeth did ascend to the throne as a result of the coup d'état staged by the royal guards against Ivan VI. The entire convent follows a blue and white color striped color scheme and the architecture reminds people of the basic style of construction that has been practiced in Russia.
