This building was constructed for military training of the Life Guard Horse regiment. Three bas-reliefs on the frieze of the main entrance emphasize the classical style of this building. In front of the portal copies of antique statues (figures of the Dioskyres twin brothers, Castor and Pollux, sons of Zeus) stand on high pedestals.
