The St Petersburg Artist's Paint Plant "Nevskaya Palitra", where the wonderful White Nights watercolours are being produced, has been in existence since 1900.

Colours made in the Nevskaya Palitra factory have been used in the restoration of many famous
Russian Palaces and Cathedrals, including:

  • St Basil's Cathedral
  • The Kremlin Big Palace
  • The Taurida Palace
  • The Temple of Christ the Saviour

The paints have also been used in the restoration of pictures from Russian museums and galleries including:

  • The Hermitage
  • The State Russian Museum
  • The State Tretyakov Gallery

Fun fact: "Nevskaya Palitra" means "Neva Palette" in Russian and refers to the river Neva which flows through the beautiful city of St. Petersburg.
