From June to August 1831, Grand Duchess Helene of Russia, sister in law of the Tsar, rented No. 8 for herself and No. 7 for her entourage. She was accompanied during her stay by Counts Tolstoy and Gagarin and the Countess Nesslerode. Her staff of over 100 included a Russian band who, resplendent in tunics of her household, played outside on the terrace. The visit is commemorated by the double-headed eagle, symbol of Imperial Russia, on the central pediment.
